§2558. Abolition of positions in the classified service

            A. Whenever the appointing authority abolishes a position in the classified service and there is no position vacant in the respective class to which the regular employee of the abolished position may be transferred, the employee shall be transferred to any position of the same class which may be held by a provisional employee. If there is no such position, he shall be transferred to another position in the respective class, and the holder of that position thereupon shall be demoted in the order provided by R.S. 33:2548.

            B. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, if an entire class in the police department for the city of DeRidder or Eunice is abolished in the classified service, the regular employees of the class shall be demoted to lower classes and priority to positions shall be governed by the total promotional seniority earned in the class, from highest to lowest. If two or more persons possess an equal amount of promotional seniority, the names of such persons shall be placed on the reinstatement list in the order of departmental seniority, from highest to lowest.
