Questions and Answers Regarding Hiring Lists
 
DOC Careers
1. What is the Agency Layoff List?
 
The Department of Corrections (DOC) Layoff List includes the names of regular status Department employees who are separated from their position in good standing due to layoff or demotion in lieu of layoff.
 
2. Does it benefit me to be on the Layoff List?
 
Yes. Recruitment will pull Layoff Lists as a priority for every vacancy approved to fill. New employees may not be hired for the classifications/geographic areas affected until all employees on Layoff Lists have been offered reemployment for a two year period from their date of layoff.
 
3. If I’m a laid-off employee, am I automatically on the Layoff List?
 
No. Only employees who are laid-off need to submit an online application to the Department’s layoff announcement on the Department’s Recruitment website as soon as they receive notification of possible layoff. www.odocjobs.com
 
4. Why is it necessary to get the online application turned in before I’m laid-off?
 
Recruitment would like to assist you by reviewing your application to see if you meet the minimum qualifications (MQ’s) for DOC positions that may become available. Recruitment is only able to view your online application when it is submitted to an announcement.


5. Can I be on Layoff Lists for other classifications other than my permanent position?
 
No. Employees can only be on a Layoff List for the classification from which they were laid-off.
 
6. If I am an AFSCME represented employee can I be considered for vacancies statewide in my classification?
 
No. Employees are placed on the Layoff List by classification and geographic area. The two geographic areas are defined as the area west of Cascade Mountain Range and the area east of the Cascade Mountain Range.


7. If I am Management Service employee can I be considered for vacancies statewide in my classification?


Yes. There are no geographic limitations for management service.
 
8. How long will I be on the Layoff List?
 
Employees will remain on a Layoff List for up to two years from the date of layoff or demotion in lieu of layoff.
 
9. If I want to remain with the Department of Corrections, do I have any other options in order to be considered for vacancies?
 
Yes. The DOC Reemployment List is for former DOC employees who have completed initial trial service and have separated from the department within the last two years. www.odocjobs.com
 
10. Can I onlyapply for the classification from which I separated?
 
No. You may be placed on DOC Reemployment Lists for classifications for which you qualify of the same, equal or lower salary range of the position from which you separated. A separate online application must be completed for each classification.
 
11. How long can I be on the DOC Reeployment List?
 
Employees are eligible to apply and be active on the list for up to two years from their separation date. They will also be removed upon reemployment to an equivalent position other than temporary.
 
12. Is there any other list that gives layoff employees priority?
 
Yes. Regular status AFSCME Security-Plus represented employees can elect to be placed on the Secondary Recall list for their classification. Their name will be pulled by all AFSCME represented agencies that use their same or a like classification. By policy, AFSCME represented state agencies are required to pull Secondary Recall lists for all vacancies not already filled by their department layoff lists.
 
13. How do you get on the Secondary Recall List?
 
Secondary Recall Lists are only available for AFSCME Security-Plus employees affected by layoff. Affected employees should apply to the Statewide Secondary Recall Announcement that is maintained by the Department of Administrative Services (DAS). If you choose to apply and find that the announcement is not currently open, contact the DOC Recruitment Unit. DAS doesn’t keep this announcement open continually but will re-open it upon agency request. www.oregonjobs.org
 
14. Does the Secondary Recall List limit employees to the geographic area of their former position?
 
No. Employees may select any geographic area to which they are willing to be recalled.
 
15. What’s the length of eligibility for the Secondary Recall List?
 
AFSCME Security-Plus employees will remain on the list for up to two years from the date of layoff or demotion in lieu of layoff. They will also be removed after the first refusal of job offer or upon reemployment to an equivalent position other than temporary.
