The reorganization of service regions established pursuant to Section 54444.1 shall not affect the right to retain salary, leaves, and other benefits of persons employed in positions that do not require certification as follows:

(a) An employee of a service region that is included in any other service region shall become the employee of the new service region if the new service region has an equivalent vacant position that the new service region elects to fill in its program for migratory children.

(b) When a portion of the service region of a regional service center becomes part of another regional service center, an employee regularly assigned to perform duties in the service region affected shall become the employee of the acquiring regional service center if the acquiring regional service center has an equivalent vacant position that the acquiring regional service center elects to fill in its program for migratory children. An employee whose assignment pertained to the affected service region, but whose employment site was not in the service region, may elect to remain with the original regional service center or become the employee of the acquiring regional service center if the acquiring regional service center has an equivalent vacant position that the acquiring regional service center elects to fill in its program for migratory children.

(c) When the service region of any regional service center is divided between, or among, two or more regional service centers and the original regional service center ceases to exist, an employee of the original regional service center regularly assigned to perform duties in any specific service region shall become the employee of the regional service center acquiring the service region if the acquiring regional service center has an equivalent vacant position that the acquiring regional service center elects to fill in its program for migratory children. An employee not assigned to a specific service region within the original regional service center shall become the employee of any acquiring regional service center at the election of the employee if the acquiring regional service center has an equivalent vacant position that the acquiring regional service center elects to fill in its program for migratory children.

(d) If, pursuant to this section, an employee of a service region is unable to become an employee of a new or acquiring service region because there are no equivalent vacant positions available in the new or acquiring service region, that employee shall be placed on an eligibility list for an equivalent position for the migrant education program in the new or acquiring service region for a period of not less than 39 months.

(e) A service region that employs individuals pursuant to this section shall do so on a seniority basis.
