These payments shall be made only upon the certification of the trustees that the expenditure is necessary in order to recruit qualified persons needed by the California State University.

If, for reasons that do not meet the approval of the trustees, the employee or applicant for employment does not accept or continue the employment for a period of two years, he or she shall reimburse the trustees for the moving and travel expenses for the full or proportionate amount.

It is the policy of the state to avoid the necessity for overtime work whenever possible.

This policy does not restrict the extension of regular working-hour schedules on an overtime basis when the action is necessary to carry on the business of the California State University properly during a manpower shortage.

The trustees may provide for the payment of overtime in designated classes for work performed after the normal scheduled workday or normal scheduled workweek, when the designation is appropriate to the designated class.

This sum shall be computed by projecting the accumulated time on a calendar basis so that the lump sum will equal the amount which the employee would have been paid had the employee taken the time off but not separated from the service.

(b) Employees separated from service through fault of their own are entitled to a lump-sum payment for compensating time off for overtime work, and in addition, the portion, if any, of unused vacation as the trustees may determine.

However, a lump-sum payment shall not be made to a person who returns to a position in the same class within 15 working days of the date of the person’s resignation.

(d) Except for payment authorized or excluded under subdivision (c), an employee who returns to state service during the period through which his or her lump-sum payment was computed may refund the amount of lump-sum payment which exceeds his or her break in service and have the balance of credits restored as though he or she had remained in state service and taken the time off.

(e) If subdivisions (a) to (d), inclusive, are in conflict with the provisions of a memorandum of understanding reached pursuant to Chapter 12 (commencing with Section 3560) of Division 4 of Title 1 of the Government Code, the memorandum of understanding shall be controlling without further legislative action, except that if the provisions of a memorandum of understanding require the expenditure of funds, the provisions shall not become effective unless approved by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act.

(a) Any employee who, immediately prior to becoming an employee, was an employee of an auxiliary organization as provided in Section 89900, and whose functions and employment were, subsequent to January 1, 1969, transferred to and assumed by a state university or college, shall be entitled to accumulate credit for vacation at the rate to which he or she would have been entitled if his or her employment by the auxiliary organization had been employment by a state university or college.

(b) If the provisions of this section are in conflict with the provisions of a memorandum of understanding reached pursuant to Chapter 12 (commencing with Section 3560) of Division 4 of Title 1 of the Government Code, the memorandum of understanding shall be controlling without further legislative action, except that if the provisions of a memorandum of understanding require the expenditure of funds, the provisions shall not become effective unless approved by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act.

When an employee uses sick leave or vacation, or both, because of an injury compensable under the Labor Code, and the California State University is reimbursed by a third person for its damages by reason of this use, there shall be granted, for credit to the employee’s sick leave or vacation account, sick leave or vacation equivalent to the amount so used or proportionately if reimbursement is only in part. If the California State University does not collect from the third person the full amount of the compensation paid and other damages for which it is liable to the employee, and if the amount collected is not itemized so that there may be ascertained the amount collected in reimbursement for the sick leave or vacation used, the sick leave or vacation to be credited shall be in the same ratio to the sick leave or vacation used as the total amount collected bears to the total amount of the California State University’s damages. “Sick leave” or “vacation,” as used in this rule, includes sick leave or vacation credit used to augment disability indemnity.

(a) An officer or employee who is or may be entitled to temporary disability indemnity under Division 4 (commencing with Section 3200) or Division 4.5 (commencing with Section 6100) of the Labor Code shall receive any accumulated sick leave, or accumulated compensable overtime, or accumulated vacation for the absence. The trustees shall decrease the charge of sick leave, or compensable overtime, or vacation in the amount of temporary disability payment received so that the officer or employee shall not receive payment in excess of full salary or wage.

If an officer or employee does not wish to use his or her accumulated sick leave, or accumulated compensable overtime, or accumulated vacation, he or she shall notify his or her appointing power within 15 days after the injury is reported to the appointing power. After the 15 days his or her accumulations shall be used until the date he or she notifies the appointing power in writing that he or she no longer wishes to use the accumulations. When computing sick leave, or overtime, or vacation under this section the employee shall be given credit for any holidays that occur during the period of absence hereunder.

He or she is, nevertheless, entitled to medical, surgical, and hospital treatment as provided in the Labor Code. When his or her accumulated sick leave, or overtime, or vacation, or all, are exhausted, he or she is still entitled to receive disability indemnity.

(b) If the provisions of this section are in conflict with the provisions of a memorandum of understanding reached pursuant to Chapter 12 (commencing with Section 3560) of Division 4 of Title 1 of the Government Code, the memorandum of understanding shall be controlling without further legislative action, except that if the provisions of a memorandum of understanding require the expenditure of funds, the provisions shall not become effective unless approved by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act.

(a) In order to improve the recruitment and retention of faculty in specified academic disciplines, the trustees shall establish a supplemental salary program.

Each fiscal year, the trustees shall identify both of the following:

(1) Those academic disciplines for which recruiting and retaining competent faculty has been a problem because the faculty salaries generally applicable are not competitive with salaries offered by industry or by other educational institutions.

(2) Those faculty members in the academic disciplines identified pursuant to paragraph (1) who shall qualify for participation in the supplemental salary program.

The memorandum of understanding between the trustees and the appropriate faculty bargaining unit shall specify the implementation plan for the supplemental salary program.

(b) This section shall be operative only for those years in which the Budget Act appropriates funds specifically for the supplemental salary program pursuant to this section.

(c) If this section is in conflict with a memorandum of understanding reached pursuant to Chapter 12 (commencing with Section 3560) of Division 4 of Title 1 of the Government Code, the memorandum of understanding shall be controlling without further legislative action, except that if the provisions of a memorandum of understanding require the expenditure of funds, the provisions shall not become effective unless approved by the Legislature in the annual Budget Act.
