This bill provides that, in the case of a local health agency whose activities and responsibilities are assumed by a superseding local health agency, such as a county health agency, an employee of the local health agency may be transferred to the superseding local agency, and be assigned duties comparable to those previously performed by him. The transferred employee would be subject to layoff procedures prior to the transfer to the new entity. Once transferred, the employee would be subject to any employment contracts and provisions that exist for the new entity. The final decision of which employees shall transfer to the new employer would be vested solely with the local unit that would provide the service. The bill also provides that in the event that the superseding local health department to which certain employees may be transferred is subject to the provisions of the Civil Service law, the Civil Service Commission shall vest only those transferred employees who have been employed for two years or more in permanent status, pursuant to N.J.S.11A:9-9, in appropriate titles, seniority, and tenure with the providing local unit based on the duties of the position. Under current law, when the activities and responsibilities of a local health agency are assumed by a superseding local health agency, all terminated employees of the old agency must be transferred to the new agency, at the same position and salary and with the same rights and privileges, which minimizes the possibility of any cost savings.
