18A:13-64. Positions, rights and benefits of regional, constituent district employees continued
14. All employees of the regional district shall continue in their respective positions in the withdrawing district, or in each of the constituent districts in the event of a dissolution, and all of their rights of tenure, seniority, pension, leave of absence and other similar benefits shall be recognized and preserved and any periods of prior employment in the regional district shall count toward the acquisition of tenure to the same extent as if all such employment had been under the withdrawing district or in any of the constituent districts in the event of a dissolution. In the event of a withdrawal, any tenured employee in a school located in the withdrawing district who desires to remain in the employ of the regional district, and whose seniority under existing tenure laws so permits, may apply for and shall be granted a transfer to a position with the regional district for which he is certified which is vacant, held by a tenured employee with less seniority or by an employee without tenure; applications for such transfers shall be made within 45 days of the date of the special school election at which the withdrawal was approved.
