RIF Tools

​A Reduction-In-Force (RIF) is the separation from a job, the reduction in pay, or the 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 for classified employees outlined in State Personnel Board Rule 478-1-.25.  Although it is mandatory for classified employees, agencies may choose to use the same process for unclassified employees. The RIF Toolkit is provided to assist agencies with this process.

 

Before initiating a RIF involving classified employees or a furlough action involving classified or unclassified employees, please submit a RIF plan to the DOAS/HRA Policy & Compliance Unit.  Our staff is available for consultation on RIF planning and implementation.
