Every person employed by a community college district as a contract or regular employee in an academic position who enters the active military service of the United States of America or of the State of California, including active service in any uniformed auxiliary of, or to, any branch of such military service, created or authorized as such auxiliary by the Congress of the United States of America or by the Legislature of the State of California, or in the service of the United States Merchant Marine, or in full-time paid service of the American Red Cross, during any period of national emergency declared by the President of the United States of America or during any war in which the United States of America is engaged, shall be entitled to absent himself or herself from his or her duties as an employee of the district.

Such absence shall not affect in any way the classification of the employee. In the case of a contract employee, the period of the absence shall not count as part of the service required as a condition precedent to the classification of the employee as a regular employee of the district, but such absence shall not be construed as a break in the continuity of the service of the employee for any purpose.

The dismissal or termination of any contract employee because of reduced attendance due to war conditions, after his or her entry into the active military service or service in the American Red Cross, shall not deprive him or her of any of the benefits of this section.

Within six months after the employee honorably leaves the service or has been placed on inactive duty he or she shall, subject to the provisions of this section, be entitled to return to the position held by him or her at the time of his or her entrance into the service, at the salary to which he or she would have been entitled had he or she not absented himself or herself from the service of the district under this section.

If the employee was employed under a lawful contract for a period in excess of one year in a position in which he or she had not become a regular employee of the district, he or she shall be entitled to return to the position for the period his or her contract of employment had to run at the time he or she entered the service. Notwithstanding any provision of this code to the contrary, a person employed to take the place of any such employee shall not have any right to the position following the return of the employee to the position.

(Amended by Stats. 1990, Ch. 1302, Sec. 119. Effective September 25, 1990.)

87701.
  

Every person employed by a community college district as a permanent employee in an academic position who is elected to the Legislature shall be granted a leave of absence from his or her duties as an employee of the district by the governing board of the district.

During the term of the leave of absence, the employee may be employed by the district to perform less than full-time service, for compensation and upon terms and conditions, as may be mutually agreed upon.

This absence shall not affect in any way the classification of the employee.

Within six months after the term of office of the employee expires, he or she is entitled to return to the position held by him or her at the time of his or her election, at the salary to which he or she would have been entitled had he or she not absented himself or herself from the service of the district under this section.

Notwithstanding any provision of this code to the contrary, a person employed to take the place of any such employee shall not have any right to the position following the return of the employee to the position.

This section shall apply to any permanent employee who held the office of Member of the Assembly or State Senator on or after January 4, 1965.

(Amended by Stats. 1995, Ch. 758, Sec. 164. Effective January 1, 1996.)

87706.
  

Notwithstanding any other provision of this code, no community college district, or any officer or employee of such district or board shall be responsible or in any way liable for the conduct or safety of any student of the public schools at any time when such student is not in school property, unless such district has undertaken to provide transportation for such student to and from the school premises, has undertaken a school-sponsored activity off the premises of such school, has otherwise specifically assumed such responsibility or liability or has failed to exercise reasonable care under the circumstances.

In the event of such a specific undertaking, the district shall be liable or responsible for the conduct or safety of any student only while such student is or should be under the immediate and direct supervision of an employee of such district or board.

(Enacted by Stats. 1976, Ch. 1010.)

87708.
  

(a) Every parent, guardian, or other person who assaults or abuses any academic employee in the presence or hearing of a community college student is guilty of a misdemeanor.

(b) Any parent, guardian, or other person who assaults or abuses any academic employee in the presence of other community college personnel or students and at a place which is on community college premises or public sidewalks, streets, or other public ways adjacent to school premises, or at some other place where the employee is required to be in connection with assigned college activities is guilty of a misdemeanor.

(Amended by Stats. 1990, Ch. 1302, Sec. 121. Effective September 25, 1990.)

87714.
  

The chief executive officer of each community college district shall, at times as required by the board of governors, provide an affidavit that, during the 12 months preceding the execution of the affidavit, all academic employees of the district possessed the required minimum qualifications for the work they performed.

(Amended by Stats. 1990, Ch. 1302, Sec. 122. Effective September 25, 1990.)

87715.
  

A full-time contract or regular classroom instructor currently employed by a community college district that decides to maintain classes on Saturday or Sunday, or both, shall not, without his or her written consent, be required to instruct under that program for more than 180 full days during a college year, or for more than the number of full days the colleges of the district were maintained during the year preceding implementation of weekend classes, whichever is greater. This section shall not be construed as limiting the power of any governing board of a community college district to govern the colleges of the district, including the assignment of instructors employed by the district. No such classroom instructor shall be assigned to perform services on a Saturday or Sunday if the instructor objects in writing that the assignment would conflict with his or her religious beliefs or practices.

(Amended by Stats. 1995, Ch. 758, Sec. 165. Effective January 1, 1996.)
