Nev. Admin. Code § 284.290 - Retained rates of pay
1. An employee who is reclassified downward is entitled to a retained rate of pay if:
(a) The employee has been in the same class for the equivalent of 6 months or more of full-time employment immediately preceding the downward reclassification; and
(b) The reclassification is the result of a reorganization or other legitimate reason over which the employee has no control.
2. If an employee is entitled to a retained rate of pay pursuant to this section, the employee's base rate of pay remains unaffected for 2 years after the effective date of the downward reclassification. At the end of the 2-year period, the employee's base rate of pay will be frozen until it falls within the range of the grade to which he or she was reclassified or for a maximum of 2 years, making the employee ineligible for any merit pay increases, cost of living adjustments or adjustments for a class of employees that have been approved by the Legislature. If the employee's frozen base rate of pay does not fall within the range of the grade to which he or she was reclassified within the 2-year period, his or her base rate of pay will be adjusted to the highest step within the lower grade to which he or she was reclassified.
3. If the employee voluntarily accepts another position within the time period prescribed in subsection 2, he or she may no longer retain his or her base rate of pay.
4. The employee is entitled to reemployment rights to his or her former class and option in his or her department for 1 year after the date of notification of the reclassification as provided in NAC 284.140.
5. This section does not apply to an employee who is occupying a position which is temporarily reclassified to a higher class and is later restored to the former class pursuant to NAC 284.132.
