(1) Who are to be or have been furloughed for 3 months or more;

(2) Who within 3 months are to be dropped on account of reduction of force.

(3) Who within 1 year have been dropped for reduction of force.

(b) Utilization of list. (1) The reemployment list shall take precedence over open competitive registers and shall be used to fill classified and unclassified positions, both permanent and temporary, except as provided in paragraph (o).

(2) Temporary appointments in the field service not to exceed thirty days may, if necessary in emergencies, be made without regard to the reemployment list. (See § 8.103)

(c) Positions on list. Persons who apply for entry on the reemployment list and are eligible therefor will be placed on the list for:

(1) Positions the duties of which they had been performing for a substantial period with a proper civil service status at the time of separation or within 1 year thereof;

(2) Any positions for which the applicant has qualified in examination and for which the Commission finds him qualified at present;

(3). Where employees otherwise eligible for the reemployment list have been separated from positions which as a group no longer exist in the competitive classified service, they will be placed on the reemployment list for existing positions which in respect to duties nd qualification requirements are closely similar to the positions from which separated.

(d) Names on more than one list. Persons eligible for entry on the reemployment list in a civil-service district office may also be entered on the reemployment list in the Commission's central office if they are willing to accept appointment in Washington, D. C., and if they file separate applications for both offices and are rated eligible for a position in Washington, D. C. Persons on the central office list may also be entered on the appropriate reemployment list maintained in a district office if rated eligible for a district position. No person shall have his name carried on the reemployment list of more than one civil service district office.

(e) Period of eligibility. The period of eligibility on the reemployment list shall be 1 year from the date of entry of name on the list. Upon request of an eligible on the reemployment list, the Commission will extend his eligibility for an additional period of 1 year.

District managers shall maintain reemployment lists covering field positions which are under the district system for all branches of the Government and for those positions for which registers are maintained by the district managers for specific branches.

Page 34

will be listed in the order of highest averages attained in the most appropriate examination; eligibles who are placed on the reemployment list as specified in paragraph (c) (2) will be listed in the order of the averages attained in the noncompetitive examination ordered by the Commission for entry on the reemployment list.

(2) The greatest opportunity for certification will be given to eligibles on the reemployment list. A person whose name has been entered on the list for a particular position may be certified without further examination for appointment to any similar position (or to any lower-grade position in the same line of work) for which he is considered qualified by the Commission.

(3) When it is not administratively feasible to certify the entire list of eligibles, a sufficient number of names will be certified to meet the apparent needs of the service.

(4) The appointing officer may select any person whose name is certified from the reemployment list.

(5) If there are fewer than three names available for certification to a vacancy, the certificate may be completed from the current register.

( appointment by a person whose name is on the reemployment list will not remove his name from the list for consideration for probational appointment. Probational appointment to any position will terminate eligibility of that individual on the reemployment list for all positions. Declination of probational appointment or failure to respond will cause the removal of the name from the list for all positions. Reentry of names on the list in such cases will be governed by the same rules as govern the reentry of names on competitive registers.

(k) New probationary period. Persons selected from the reemployment list shall be required to serve a new probationary period of not exceeding 3 months, except that those who have not previously completed probation shall be required to serve the usual probationary period for the position in which reemployed. The declaration of appointee shall be required in each case. Medical certificates and fingerprints (unless a fingerprint chart has previously been furnished) shall be required for those persons out of the service.

(1) Apportionment. The apportionment must be observed in certifying from_the reemployment list for apportioned positions in Washington, D. C.

(1) Persons on furlough, or about to be dropped from positions not in the apportioned service, may not be transferred under the reemployment list procedure to the apportioned service if from a State in excess, unless such positions in the nonapportioned service were secured by transfer from an apportioned position without break in service, or unless there is an absence of eligibles from States in arrears.

(2) Eligibles on the reemployment list from States in excess, who have been separated from the service, may not be certified to positions
