An act to amend Section 31840.7 of the Government Code, relating to county employees’ retirement.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1885, Bonilla. County employees’ retirement: reciprocal benefits.
Under existing law, counties and districts, as defined, may provide retirement benefits to their employees pursuant to the County Employees Retirement Law of 1937. Existing law provides for reciprocity of retirement benefits, as specified, to a member of a county retirement system by reason of his or her membership in another specified public retirement system, as specified. Existing law provides that wherever the reciprocal rights of a member of a county retirement system are conditioned upon reemployment within a specified period after termination of employment covered by another retirement system, the period shall be one year in the case of any member who was reemployed on or after January 1, 1989, and whose termination of employment was due to layoff because of, a lack of work, a lack of funds, or a reduction in workforce. Existing law prohibits that one-year reemployment provision from being operative in any county until the board of supervisors, by resolution adopted by a majority vote, makes the provision applicable in that county.
This bill would make that one-year reemployment provision applicable in all counties.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 31840.7 of the Government Code is amended to read:

31840.7.
 Wherever in this chapter the rights of a member, because of membership in another retirement system, are conditioned upon reemployment within a specified period after termination of employment covered by a system under this chapter or another retirement system, the period shall be one year in the case of any member who was reemployed on or after January 1, 1989, and whose termination of employment was due to layoff because of a lack of work, a lack of funds, or a reduction in workforce.
