Well, that's not usually the termonology used, but employees can be promoted, and they can be demoted. It's not uncommon if an employee is not working out in the new position, for him or her to be demoted back to the previous position. As long as this is done because of the employee's performance, and not due to their race, color, religion, sex, national ancestry, pregnancy, disability status or age (over 40), it's probably legal.
