(1) The receiving employer, in determining a comparable position, shall consider the employee’s educational and physical qualifications, experience, and the salary, duties and responsibilities of prior employment.

(2) If the receiving employer finds that no comparable position exists under subsection (1) of this section, the employee shall be offered a lesser position, if such position is available, according to the qualifications of the employee, by the receiving employer.

Notes of Decisions

The specific terms of ORS 342.120 (Definitions) et seq., relating to teachers, controlled over the general terms of these sec­tions, so these sec­tions did not guarantee reten­tion of permanent teacher status by a teacher who transferred from a school district to an Intermediate Educa­tion District.
