This bill prohibits the payment by public employers of supplemental compensation for unused sick leave earned after the bill's effective date by any current or future State, local government, or board of education officer or employee who does not have a majority representative for collective negotiations purposes. Under this bill, supplemental compensation will not be permitted upon retirement in any amount for any accumulated unused sick leave time earned after the bill's effective date. Supplemental compensation for any time earned prior to that date will be payable as under current law. In addition, this bill limits the carry-forward of unused vacation leave to one successive year only for current or future State, local government, or board of education officers and employees whether they have a majority representative for collective negotiations purposes or do not have such a representative. Also, a payment for accumulated unused sick leave or vacation leave will be suspended if such officer or employee is indicted for certain crimes that involve or touch the office or employment. The payment will be forfeited if such an officer or employee is convicted. The bill requires the Attorney General to develop guidelines or establish procedures to provide the appropriate governmental agency or public employer with notice of any indictment or conviction of a current or former officer or employee. Certain provisions of the bill would apply on the effective date or upon the expiration of an individual contract of employment with a relevant provision in effect on the bill's effective date. The bill will take effect the first day of the second month after enactment.
