(2) Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to limit the authority of a contracting agency or school employer to periodically increase, reduce, or eliminate the payment by the contracting agency or school employer of all or a portion of the normal contributions required to be paid by members, as authorized by this section.

That amount shall not exceed the amount of the normal member contributions that are required to be paid by the members.

(b) This section shall not apply to any contracting agency or to any school employer unless and until the contracting agency or the school employer elects to be subject to this section by amendment to its contract made in the manner prescribed for approval of contracts, except an election among the employees is not required.

(d) Persons hired after the effective date of an employer’s contract amendment to include this section shall be informed by the employer of how this benefit relates to their total compensation and benefit package.

(e) The additional employer contributions required under this section shall be computed as a level percentage of member compensation. The additional contribution rate required at the time this section is added to a contract shall not be less than the sum of (1) the actuarial normal cost, plus (2) in the case of a contract amendment, the additional contribution required to amortize the increase in accrued liability attributable to the benefit elected under this section over the unfunded actuarial liability period currently in the agency’s contract, commencing from the date this section becomes effective in the agency’s contract.

(f) For the purposes of this section, all contributions, liabilities, actuarial interest rates, and other valuation factors necessary to calculate the employer’s contribution shall be determined on the basis of actuarial assumptions and methods which, in combination, provide the board’s best estimate of anticipated experience under the system. The board has the exclusive power and duty to make these determinations.

(g) Within 30 days of notification from the board to the contracting agency or school employer of the additional employer contributions required pursuant to this section, the contracting agency or school employer, or a recognized employee organization, or both, may file with the board a request for a review of the determination of the calculation of the additional employer contributions. The board shall promulgate regulations governing the conduct of the review, that shall include the means by which an employer or recognized employee organization may submit independent actuarial evidence regarding the additional contribution required by this section. The board shall make the final determination on the additional employer contributions needed to fund this contract amendment.

(h) This section shall not apply to a new member as defined in Section 7522.04.

This section shall be subject to any applicable collective-bargaining laws.

(b) Notwithstanding subdivision (a), employers shall not pay a portion of the normal contributions for members who are subject to subdivision (c) of Section 7522.30, except where authorized pursuant to subdivision (f) of Section 7522.30.
