Employers may elevate an employee with permanent status to the class held by the employee immediately prior to being demoted or to a class in the same class series which is between the current class and the class from which the employee was demoted. Elevation must be to a position for which they meet the competencies and other position requirements. The employer may require the elevated employee to serve a trial service period.
