At a minimum, the employer must provide the permanent employee who is leaving a WGS position with the employer to accept a WMS acting appointment access to the employer's internal layoff list at the conclusion of the acting appointment. If the employer agrees to return the employee to a position, the employee must notify the employer of his/her intent to return to a permanent position at least fourteen (14) calendar days in advance of return unless the employee and employer agree otherwise. Failure of the employee to provide proper written notice to the employer may result in forfeiture of any return rights. Upon return to a permanent position, the employee's salary must be determined by the employer's salary determination policy.
