I was wondering if anyone out here knows for sure if once the list is signed and finalized and the process is already going for a dept. (i.e. backgrounds, and what not) if a canidate can be bumped because of new lay offs that occur after the closing date to sign a list for a dept. has come and gone and the list of canidates that signed is certified with HRD. I have gotten diffent answers from people but nothing thats definite.
