Employees Affected by a Reduction In Force - (RIF)

If you are a state government employee separated by a reduction in force (RIF) and you have grievance rights, you may participate in the Division of State Human Resources (DSHR) RIF Applicant Pool. State agencies are required to submit specific information electronically to DSHR concerning employees separated by a RIF.

The information provided by state agencies becomes DSHR's official RIF Applicant Pool database. Any state agency that posts a vacancy is required to give priority consideration to employees separated by a RIF.

Eligible employees separated by a RIF can access this information at any time to update their addresses, telephone numbers, skills, or other information. The eligible employee's information will remain in the RIF applicant pool database for 12 months following the effective date of the RIF. State agencies can access the information in the RIF Applicant Pool to identify those applicants to whom they should give priority consideration.
