IN THE MATTER OF TANAYA TUKES, ET AL. A-3374-14T3
IN THE MATTER OF TANAYA TUKES, ET AL.
In early 2015, the Department of Human Services closed the Woodbridge Developmental Center and privatized the operation of some State-operated group homes. This decision resulted in the need to lay off, demote, or reassign a number of employees. In this appeal, we reviewed the Department's employee layoff plan, which was approved by the Civil Service Commission, and affirmed the Commission's determination that employees in two job titles had lateral title displacement rights relative to each other.
