If a permanent employee in a classified position accepts an appointment to an exempt position, what is the employee's right to return to a position in the classified service?

A permanent employee who accepts an appointment to an exempt position has the right to return to classified service at any time as long as the employee was not terminated from an exempt position for gross misconduct or malfeasance.
The employee's right is to a position in the highest class in which the employee previously held permanent status or to a position of similar nature and salary. The return right is to the most recent employer with which permanent status in the highest class was held. A position in the highest class does not necessarily mean return to the most recent employer.
If upon an employee being returned to a classified position there are fewer positions than there are employees entitled to such positions, the employer's layoff procedure applies.
