(b) In addition, “state safety member” shall also include officers and employees of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation in any classification of Vocational Instructor, Industrial Supervisor, Industrial Superintendent, Assistant Industrial Superintendent, or Production Manager II (Prison Industries) that is established on or after January 1, 1984, if the Department of Human Resources and the State Personnel Board approve the inclusion of the classification.

(c) “State safety member” shall also include officers and employees in parenthetical specialty classes when the core class has already been expressly included in the state safety membership category if the Department of Human Resources and the State Personnel Board approve the inclusion of the classifications. The inclusion shall not be effective until notice of the inclusion has been received by the board.

(d) Any of these officers or employees in employment on the operative date of an amendment to this section and who becomes a state safety member as a result of that amendment, may elect by a writing filed with the board prior to 90 days after notification by the board, to be restored to his or her previous status as a state industrial member. Upon the filing of the election the member shall cease to be a state safety member, and his or her rights and obligations shall be restored prospectively and retroactively to the operative date of that amendment.

(Amended by Stats. 2012, Ch. 665, Sec. 114. (SB 1308) Effective January 1, 2013.)

20405.1.
  

Notwithstanding Section 20405, this section shall apply to state employees in state bargaining units that have agreed to these provisions in a memorandum of understanding between the state employer and the recognized employee organization, as defined in Section 3513, state employees who are excluded from the definition of “state employee” by subdivision (c) of Section 3513, and officers or employees of the executive branch of state government who are not members of the civil service.

(a) On and after the effective date of this section, state safety members shall also include officers and employees whose classifications or positions are found to meet the state safety criteria prescribed in Section 19816.20, provided the Department of Human Resources agrees to their inclusion, and officers and employees whose classifications or positions have been designated as subject to state safety membership pursuant to Section 19816.21. For employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement, the effective date of safety membership shall be the date on which the department and the employees’ exclusive representative reach agreement by memorandum of understanding pursuant to Section 3517.5 or any later date specified in the memorandum of understanding. For employees not covered by a collective bargaining agreement, the Department of Human Resources shall determine the effective date of safety membership.

(b) The department shall notify the board as new classes or positions become eligible for state safety membership, as specified in subdivision (a), and specify how service prior to the effective date shall be credited.

(c) The department shall prepare and submit to the Legislature an annual report that contains the classes or positions that are eligible for state safety membership under this section.

(d) Any person designated as a state safety member pursuant to this section may elect, within 90 days of notification by the board, to remain subject to the miscellaneous or industrial service retirement benefit and contribution rate by filing an irrevocable election with the board. A member who so elects shall be subject to the reduced benefit factors specified in Section 21076, 21353, or 21354.1, as applicable, only for service also included in the federal system.

(Amended by Stats. 2012, Ch. 665, Sec. 115. (SB 1308) Effective January 1, 2013.)

20405.2.
  

A member who made the election to remain under the miscellaneous or industrial retirement benefit, as provided in Section 20405.1, may elect to be subject to the state safety formula within 90 days of notification by the board. The election, which shall be provided by the board on and after January 1, 2000, shall be filed with the board. Past service that would have been credited as a safety member, but for the member’s election to remain under the miscellaneous or industrial formula, shall be credited under the safety formula. This section shall apply to state employees in state bargaining units that have agreed to this provision in a memorandum of understanding, or authorized by the Director of Human Resources for classifications of state employees that are excluded from the definition of state employee by paragraph (c) of Section 3513.

(Amended by Stats. 2012, Ch. 665, Sec. 116. (SB 1308) Effective January 1, 2013.)

20405.3.
  

(a) A member who is an employee of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, who made the election to remain under the state industrial membership classification, as provided in subdivision (d) of Section 20405, may elect to be subject to state safety membership within 90 days of notification by the board, if the employee is in any of the following classifications:

(1) Dentist, Correctional Facility.

(2) Physician and Surgeon, Correctional Facility.

(3) Staff Psychiatrist, Correctional Facility.

(4) Podiatrist, Correctional Facility.

(b) The election, which shall be provided by the board on and after January 1, 2002, shall be filed with the board. Past service that would have been credited as a state safety member, but for the member’s election to remain under the state industrial formula, shall be credited as safety service.

(c) This section shall apply to state employees in State Bargaining Unit 16 and, if authorized by the Director of Human Resources, state employees that are excluded from the definition of “state employee” by paragraph (c) of Section 3513.

(Amended by Stats. 2012, Ch. 665, Sec. 117. (SB 1308) Effective January 1, 2013.)

20406.
  

“State safety member” also includes persons employed by the state to perform lifeguard services and whose principal duties consist of active protection, rescue, and rendition of aid or assistance to persons injured or imperiled at beaches and lakes, streams, dams, reservoirs, or other bodies of open water, but not including swimming pools, and including members employed to perform duties performed under the titles of “District Aquatic Supervisor,” “Lifeguard Supervisor,” and “Lifeguard” or equivalent successor classes, some of which (including the maintenance of peace and order and the apprehension of law violators) are customarily performed by police or peace officers, and whose other duties (such as resuscitation work involving the use of special equipment in cases having no connection with their principal duties) that in other areas are customarily performed by firemen, and other and further duties that do not come directly within any of the above classifications but are essential to the safety and security of the public, other than persons employed under those titles on a seasonal basis, but excluding clerical, maintenance personnel, and others who do not fall within the scope of active lifeguarding or lifesaving services as described in this section even though those persons are subject to occasional call or are occasionally called upon to perform duties within the scope of active lifeguarding or lifesaving.

(a) Notwithstanding Section 20407, any person designated as a state safety member pursuant to Section 20407 who elected to remain subject to the miscellaneous service retirement benefit and contribution rate as provided in that section may elect instead to be subject to the state safety service retirement benefit and contribution rate.

(b) This section shall apply to those officers and employees of the State Department of State Hospitals described in Section 20407 who are represented by State Bargaining Unit 18 and who became safety members effective January 1, 1998, when the Napa State Hospital and the Metropolitan State Hospital were designated as forensic facilities.

(d) The election provided under this section shall be filed with the board by the member within 90 days after notification by the board that the member has the right to elect to be subject to the state safety member service retirement formula and contribution rates. If the election is not made by the member, he or she shall remain subject to the miscellaneous service retirement benefit and contribution rate.
