Staff Realignment

California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) developed the Seniority and Placement Unit (SPU) to monitor and complete the State Restriction of Appointment (SROA)/Surplus/Layoff process. The unit is located at CCHCS headquarters. SPU is responsible for a wide variety of duties which include, but are not limited to, seniority calculations for all CCHCS employees, verifying military service, prior exempt state service, resolving seniority discrepancies, preparing options worksheets for impacted staff and notifications of the results of the SROA/Surplus/Layoff process.

The SROA/Surplus/Layoff process is defined by very specific dates and timelines which are determined with the onset of a layoff plan. The SPU is responsible to ensure that all dates are met when an effective date of layoff has been determined. It is imperative employees respond to information requested from SPU and adheres to deadline dates that have been identified.

The staff in SPU is available to assist employees with questions regarding the SROA/Surplus/Layoff plan by calling 1-877-793-4473 (select option #2 from the menu), between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
