Preparing A Seniority List

This manual will guide you through the preparation of a new seniority list or the improvement of your present seniority list.

Preparing A Seniority List clearly and succinctly presents methods of gathering the requisite data, determining tenure status, calculating seniority entitlements, compiling and maintaining a seniority list, applying that list in a reduction in force, and maintaining a recall list.

Calculation tables make short work of figuring precise seniority entitlements from starting dates, factoring in leaves of absence, military service and part-time service.

The text is augmented by sample work sheets, letters and board motions as well as numerous examples and charts.
