236.610 Rights of employee when duties assumed by different public employer. (1) No public employee shall be deprived of employment solely because the duties of employment have been assumed or acquired by another public employer, whether or not an agreement, annexation or consolidation with the present employer is involved. Notwithstanding any statute, charter, ordinance or resolution, but subject to ORS 236.605 to 236.640, the public employee shall be transferred to the employment of the public employer that assumed or acquired the duties of the public employee, without further civil service examination.
(2) The transferred public employee shall not have the employee’s salary reduced as a result of a transfer under this section during the first 12 months of employment with the receiving employer.

(5) In the event that any transferred employee is subject to a waiting period for coverage of preexisting conditions under the health insurance plan of the receiving employer, the receiving employer shall arrange for a waiver of such waiting period with its health insurer. The transferring employer shall reimburse the receiving employer for the additional premium costs, if any, resulting from such waiver, for a period of not to exceed 12 months.
(6) In transferring a public employee under subsection (1) of this section, the employer shall furnish the employment records of that employee to the receiving employer at the time of transfer.

The employee’s election shall be in writing and made within 30 days after the date of transfer. If the employee elects to continue under the retirement system in which the employee was participating prior to transfer, the employee shall retain all rights and be entitled to all benefits under that system, the employee shall continue to make contributions to that system and the receiving employer shall make contributions on behalf of the employee to that system as required of employers participating in that system, as if the transfer had not occurred.
(c) The employee shall retain the seniority the employee accrued under prior employment, but no regular employee of the receiving employer shall be demoted or laid off by reason of that seniority at the time the transfer occurs. Thereafter, the employee’s seniority from the transferring employer shall be regarded as seniority acquired under the receiving employer.
(d) The employee otherwise shall enjoy the same privileges, including benefits, hours and conditions of employment, and be subject to the same regulations as other employees of the receiving employer.
(2) The Public Employees Retirement Board may terminate membership in the Public Employees Retirement System for any transferred employee if the board determines that allowing membership for the employee would cause the system or the Public Employees Retirement Fund to lose qualification as a qualified governmental retirement plan and trust under the Internal Revenue Code and under regulations adopted pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code.

The finding and action of such employer under this subsection, and subsection (3) of this section shall be subject to a hearing upon the employee’s request and subject to review under ORS 34.010 to 34.100.
(3) If the receiving employer finds that no position exists, the employee shall be listed as a regular laid-off employee and shall have priority to appointment over other persons eligible for any position for which the employee is qualified, subject to any applicable collective bargaining agreement.
