Policy 5.14 - Transfer of Employees and Promotion


The president may choose to fill vacant positions through lateral transfers or promotions, as appropriate. Lateral transfers occur when, with administrative approval, employees move from one area of responsibility to another without a change in level of responsibility or salary. Promotions occur when, with administrative approval, employees move from one level of responsibility to a position with a greater level of responsibility. Promotions may or may not be accompanied by a pay increase. In the case of lateral transfers or internal promotions, the supervisor is required to notify the Human Resources Office prior to initiating this action.
