LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 706, Low. Community colleges: academic employees.
Existing law establishes the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. Existing law establishes community college districts, administered by governing boards, throughout the state. Existing law requires that the total amount of leave of absence for illness or injury to which an academic employee of a community college district is entitled be transferred with the employee to another district, if the employee accepts employment with, or is elected to, another district within 3 school years after the school year in which the employment with the first district is terminated, or within any greater period during which the employee’s reemployment rights are protected under a local bargaining agreement then in effect in the first district.
This bill would eliminate limits on the time during which an employee of one school year or more is entitled to transfer the employee’s accrued leave.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

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


SECTION 1.

 Section 87782 of the Education Code is amended to read:

87782.
 (a) An academic employee of a community college district who has been an employee of that district for a period of one school year or more shall have transferred with the employee to a second district the total amount of leave of absence for illness or injury to which the employee is entitled under Section 87781.
(b) The board of governors shall adopt rules and regulations prescribing the manner in which the first district shall certify to the second district the total amount of leave of absence for illness or injury to be transferred. No governing board shall adopt any policy or rule, written or unwritten, that requires any employee transferring to its district to waive any part or all of the leave of absence that the employee may be entitled to have transferred in accordance with this section.
