An agency has the authority to separate an employee whenever it is necessary due to shortage of funds or work, abolishment of a position, or other material change in duties or organization.

This policy addresses the employment priority afforded to Reduction-in-Force (RIF) candidates.

The Reorganization through Reduction (RTR) program is a voluntary employee separation program which enables an agency to restructure.

Separation from state government service occurs when an employee leaves the payroll.

G.S. 126-8.5 provides for severance salary continuation or a discontinued service retirement allowance when the Director of the Budget determines that the closing of a state institution or a reduction in force (RIF) will accomplish economies in the state budget, provided reemployment is not available. “Economies in the State Budget” means economies resulting from elimination of a job and its responsibilities or from a lack of funds to support the job.
