Whenever any district acquires existing facilities from a publicly or privately owned public utility, whether by proceedings in eminent domain or otherwise, any or all of the officers or employees of such public utility whose duties pertained to the facilities acquired may be appointed to positions in the district’s civil service system without examination and certification from a list of eligibles and shall be governed thereafter by this division and the rules and regulations adopted pursuant thereto but shall not be subject to the six months’ probation period.

If a civil service system is adopted for a district during the period of a leave of absence granted under Section 395.4 of the Military and Veterans Code or similar legislation, the officer or employee shall, on the termination of his leave of absence, be restored to a position in the district’s civil service system wherein he shall have the same or equivalent status as of the last working day before his leave of absence began. The officer or employee shall hold that position as if appointed thereto after examination and certification from a list of eligibles, and shall be governed thereafter by the rules and regulations of the civil service system, except that if such officer or employee had held a permanent position with the district for a period of six months continuously next preceding the beginning of his leave of absence, he shall not be subject to the six months’ probation period.

Whenever a district acquires existing facilities from a public utility, whether by proceedings in eminent domain or otherwise, any officer or employee of the public utility who left a permanent position with such utility pertaining principally to the facilities acquired in order to perform training and service under the Selective Training and Service Act of 1940 shall be entitled to be appointed to a position with permanent status in the district’s civil service under the same conditions as would have governed his right to reinstatement with the public utility under Section 8 (b) of that act if the district had not acquired those facilities.

No civil service status acquired by other officers or employees of the district shall prevent their removal by layoff or transfer from positions to which reinstatement is provided for in this section.
