(a) The order of names on an open competitive list shall be as follows:
1. When an announcement is open to more than one local jurisdiction, the resulting list of eligibles shall be separated into sub-lists by the residency requirements as provided by applicable law and ordinance.
2. Within each sub-list as provided in (a)1 above, the order of names shall be:
i. Eligibles entitled to disabled veterans preference in order of their scores;
ii. Eligibles entitled to veterans preference in order of their scores; and
iii. Non-veteran eligibles in order of their scores.
3. Eligibles who receive the same score shall have the same rank. See N.J.A.C. 4A:4-4.2(c).
4. See N.J.A.C. 4A:5-2.1 for examples on use of open competitive list.
(b) Eligibles on a promotional list shall appear in the order of their scores.
1. When scores are tied, veterans shall be listed first within each rank. See N.J.A.C. 4A:4-4.2(c).
2. See N.J.A.C. 4A:5-2.2 for examples on use of a promotional list.
(c) Eligibles on special reemployment lists shall be ranked in descending order of the class code or class level of the title from which the eligible was displaced. In the case of special reemployment lists containing the names of eligibles laid off from a job band, the eligibles shall be ranked in descending order of the class code or class level of the job band, as applicable. Within each class code or class level, eligibles shall be ranked in accordance with N.J.A.C. 4A:8-2.3(c)1.
EXAMPLE 1.: Emily is a State employee, and was displaced in the layoff process from her permanent title of Administrative Analyst 1, which has a class code of 29. She has a total of 10 years of seniority. George is also a State employee, and was displaced in the layoff process from his permanent title of Administrative Analyst 2, which has a class code of 26. He has a total of 15 years of seniority. The names of both Emily and George are placed on the special reemployment list for the title of Administrative Analyst 3, since it is a lower, related title. Emily's name will be listed first, because the class code of the title from which she was displaced is higher than the class code of the title from which George was displaced.
EXAMPLE 2.: Robert, a municipal employee, was displaced in the layoff process from his permanent title of Supervising Maintenance Repairer, the highest class level title in his title series. He has 15 years of service with the municipality. Angela, who was permanent in the title of Assistant Supervising Maintenance Repairer when she was displaced in the layoff process, has 16 and one-half years of service with the municipality. The names of both Robert and Angela will be placed at the head of special reemployment lists for Senior Maintenance Repairer and Maintenance Repairer. On both of these lists, Robert's name will appear first and Angela's second, since Robert was displaced from a higher class level title.
(d) Eligibles on regular or police and fire reemployment lists shall be ranked in the order of seniority in the permanent title from which they resigned, retired, or were voluntarily demoted, with the name of the person with the greatest seniority appearing first on the list.
(e) It shall be the responsibility of an eligible to keep a current address on file with the Civil Service Commission.
