A person resigning a scientific or technical position in the competitive service in which he has acquired training and experience not to be acquired elsewhere, to enter the public service of a State, county, municipality, or foreign government in a similar capacity, may immediately upon the completion of such service be reinstated in the department in which he formerly served upon the certificate of the Civil Service Commission issued upon the requisition of the department dated within three years from the date of his separation from the competitive service.
Reinstatement is not a right given to a former employee, but is merely one of the ways by which an appointing officer may fill a vacancy. Reinstatement is a matter of administrative discretion and is not to be granted unless it is in the interest of the service. Reinstatement will be refused any former employee who resigned with the view of running for office or indulging in a degree of political activity which would have been prohibited had he remained in the service.
Recommendations for reinstatement must give the last date of actual service rendered by the applicant, salary received by him at time of separation, also the number, relationship, etc., of other members of his family (if any) who are employed in the Government service.
21. Transfers, Intradepartmental. tion may be made, under the limitations prescribed by paragraph 14, for the transfer of an employee from one bureau to another bureau within the department, except to a position for which a different or higher grade of examination is required. Transfers involving a change of grade (civil-service status) can be made only when properly authorized by the Civil Serv85163°-19-3
ice Commission. Recommendations for the transfer of employees from the nonapportioned service to the apportioned service in the District of Columbia must be accompanied by a statement setting forth the reasons therefor. When an employee has been serving in the field and it is desired to assign him permanently to the District of Columbia, the approval of the Civil Service Commission must be secured before the transfer can be effected.
An employee transferred from a nonapportioned to an apportioned position shall be required, previous to his transfer, to prove legal residence in the same manner as for original appointment. Employees of proved legal residence before appointment in the nonapportioned service, who have been continuously in the Government service since their appointment, and still claim legal residence in the State from which they were appointed, however, will not, in the event of their transfer to the apportioned service, be required to sign another certificate to prove legal residence, but will be charged to the State from which originally appointed. Recommendations for transfer of employees from the field service to the District of Columbia must be submitted to the Secretary in ample time to secure the prior authority of the Civil Service Commission.
In no case will the question of a transfer be taken up by one bureau with an employee of another bureau, or with anyone making request on behalf of such employee, until the assent of the chief of the other bureau has first been obtained. No transfer will be made unless the recommendation therefor shows the concurrence of the bureau from which the transfer is proposed to be made and contains a statement of rea
sons which clearly show its necessity. (See pars. 3 and 24 of these regulations.)
22. Transfers, Interdepartmental. All requests upon heads of other departments for the approval of the transfer of employees to the Department of Agriculture shall be made by the Secretary upon recommendations of the chiefs of bureaus. Preliminary information concerning the desirability of a proposed transfer should be secured by a chief of bureau from the appropriate bureau head of another department and should be included in the recommendation submitted to the Secretary. Under the law an employee is not eligible for transfer from one department to another until he shall have served for a period of three years in the department from which he desires to be transferred, and such transfer can then be justified only when the conditions of good administration will be more fully met by such transfer than by original appointment, promotion, or transfer within the department. Recommendations for interdepartmental transfers should clearly set forth all the facts which render such transfer desirable or necessary. (See pars. 23 and 24 of these regulations.)
23. Interdepartmental Transfers to Lump-Sum Rolls at Increased Salaries Prohibited. No civil employee in any of the executive departments or other Government establishments, or who has been employed therein within the period of one year next preceding his proposed employment in any other executive department or other Government establishment, shall be employed hereafter and paid from a lump-sum appropriation in any other executive department or other Government establishment at an increased rate of compensation. And no civil em
ployee in any of the executive departments or other Government establishments or who has been employed therein within the period of one year next preceding his proposed employment in any other executive department or other Government establishment shall be granted an increase in compensation within the period of one year following such employment: Provided, That the United States Shipping Board Emergency Fleet Corporation shall be considered a Government establishment for the purpose of this section: Provided further, That this section shall not be construed to repeal section five of the act of June twenty-second, nineteen hundred and six, which prohibits the transfer of employees from one department to another unti! they shall have served for a period of three years in the department from which the transfer is proposed. (Urgent deficiency act, approved Oct. 6, 1917.)
24. Transfers During the Continuance of the War.No negotiations for transfer or employment shall be entered into with employees of other branches of the Government service except in strict compliance with Executive order of November 24, 1917. No bureau of this department shall give or offer employment, directly or indirectly, conditionally or unconditionally, to any employee in any other bureau, whether the employee is stationed in Washington or in the field, without first obtaining the written consent of the chief of bureau in which such person is employed, together with a statement that such consent is based upon the conclusion, after due consideration, that the person can render better service for the department in the branch in which his employment is proposed.
A resignation for the purpose of accepting employment in another department comes within the purview of Executive order of November 24, 1917.
The order applies to all transfers except transfers from one field service to another field service.
