RIF Tools

​A Reduction-In-Force (RIF) is separation from a job, reduction in pay, or furlough of one or more employees as the result of a shortage of work or funds or a change in organization.

 

The State has a detailed RIF process outlined in State Personnel Board Rule 478-1-.04.   The RIF Toolkit is provided to assist agencies with this process.

 

RIF plans must be filed with the Department of Administrative Services (DOAS). When practicable, the plan should be sent to DOAS before implementing the reduction in force. All RIF plans should include the total number of unclassified and classified employees affected. If a RIF includes classified employees, agencies must follow the competitive process outlined in Rule 4.

 

Our staff is available for consultation on RIF planning and implementation.
