(2) A class plan change;

(3) A classification assigned by the state personnel board of review or an arbitrator's decision; or

(4) At the approval of the director.

(B) An employee who is assigned into a lower classification will be placed in the step within the new pay range that provides the employee with compensation that is equal to his or her current rate or that provides the least amount of increase, but no decrease, in pay. Appointing authorities will consider all applicable pay supplements to ensure that an employee reassigned pursuant to this rule does not receive a decrease in pay. If the employee's base rate of pay exceeds the maximum rate of pay in the new pay range, the employee will be placed in step X.

(C) An employee placed in step X shall not receive an increase in compensation until the maximum rate of pay for the employee's classification exceeds the employee's base rate of pay.
