Reemployment Priority List (RPL) | Priority Reemployment List (PRL)

Established pursuant to Section 330.201 of Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), the following list contains availability information on competitive status Department of Justice (DOJ) personnel who have been separated by reduction-in-force (RIF) or compensable injury, or have received a specific notice of separation or a Certification of Expected Separation (see 5 CFR 330.203).

DOJ components are prohibited from filling competitive service vacancies while qualified and available RPL candidates remain to be placed. However, this does not apply to actions involving employees on DOJ's rolls such as filling a specific position through detail or position change (promotion, demotion, reassignment [see 5 CFR 330.205). An eligible employee is entitled to consideration for positions in the commuting area in which separated, or expected to be separated, for which qualified and available that are no higher grade (or equivalent) and have no greater promotion potential than the position from which the employee was separated. If a vacancy arises in one of the series, grades, and locations identified below, the DOJ component having the vacancy must contact its respective bureau level (headquarters) personnel office for further review and referral of qualified candidates.

An individual who is fully recovered from a compensable injury after one year will receive priority consideration in the former commuting area to the position the person left or an equivalent position. If the individual cannot be placed in the former commuting area, the individual is entitled to priority consideration for an equivalent position elsewhere in the agency.  (5 CFR 353.301)

Note:  To place an employee on the Reemployment Priority List, the servicing personnel office completes the Reemployment Priority List Registration Form.
