Any officer or employee, directly or indirectly, entitled to or having permanent status under the provisions of Article VII of the Constitution or the State Civil Service Act, who is displaced by one having a right to return shall be accorded the same rights to elect demotion in lieu of layoff as though he or she had had permanent status at all times in any previous position.
