State regulations are updated quarterly; we currently have two versions available. Below is a comparison between our most recent version and the prior quarterly release. More comparison features will be added as we have more versions to compare.
1-5-15. Pay of employee upon demotion. (a) Each employee who is demoted, in accordance with applicable regulations, whether voluntarily or for disciplinary reasons, shall be paid at the same step of the pay grade for the lower class as the step on which the employee was being paid in the higher class, or at any higher step that results in a decrease in the rate of compensation, except as specified in subsection (b).
(b) Any employee accepting a voluntary demotion may be paid at a step of the new pay grade that does not result in a decrease in rate if the action is in the best interest of the state service, except that the employee's rate of pay shall not exceed the maximum pay rate for the new pay grade.
(c) Nothing in this regulation shall prevent a demotion being made to a step in the pay grade lower than permitted by this regulation, if agreed upon in writing by the employee and appointing authority. However, if an employee with permanent status is promoted and, subsequently, is demoted pursuant to K.S.A. 75-2944, and amendments thereto, the employee shall be paid on a step that is no lower than the same step of the pay grade for the lower class as the step that the employee was on immediately before the promotion.
(d) An employee who takes a voluntary demotion may also receive a pay step increase on the same date if the employee is eligible for this increase.
(e) The pay increase date for any employee demoted for disciplinary reasons shall be governed by the time-on-step requirement of the step to which demoted. The pay increase date for any employee who takes a voluntary demotion shall be unchanged if the employee did not receive a pay step increase on the date of the demotion.
(f) The provisions of K.A.R. 1-5-10, rather than this regulation, shall apply when a former permanent employee who was separated from the service for more than 30 days is reinstated to a class with a lower pay grade.
(g) This regulation shall be effective on and after June 5, 2005. (Authorized by K.S.A. 2004 Supp. 75-3747; implementing K.S.A. 75-3707 and 75-3746; effective May 1, 1979; amended, E-81-14, June 12, 1980; amended May 1, 1981; amended May 1, 1983; amended, T-86-17, June 17, 1985; amended May 1, 1986; amended May 1, 1987; amended March 20, 1989; amended Jan. 6, 1992; amended Dec. 27, 1993; amended Nov. 21, 1994; amended Dec. 17, 1995; amended May 31, 1996; amended Sept. 18, 1998; amended June 5, 2005.)
