SB 29

  • California Senate Bill
  • 2009-2010, 8th Special Session
  • Introduced in Senate Feb 05, 2010
  • Passed Senate Feb 18, 2010
  • Passed Assembly Mar 08, 2010
  • Governor

Public employment: furloughs.

Abstract

Existing law sets forth the general policy that the workweek of a state employee shall be 40 hours and authorizes workweeks of different hours to be established in order to meet varying needs of different state agencies. Existing law also authorizes the Governor to require that the 40-hour workweek be worked in 4 days in any state agency or part thereof when the Governor determines that the best interests of the state would be served thereby. Existing law vests the Department of Personnel Administration with the duties and responsibilities exercised by the State Personnel Board with respect to the administration of salaries, hours, and other personnel-related matters. This bill would exempt employees in positions funded at least 95% by sources other than the General Fund, employees of the Franchise Tax Board, and employees of the State Board of Equalization from furloughs implemented by any state agency, board, or commission. The bill would also prohibit a state agency, board, or commission from directly or indirectly implementing, or assisting in implementing, a furlough of those employees. The bill would define "employee" for the purpose of those provisions and would also specify that nothing in those provisions shall be construed as legal authorization for the imposition of furloughs on employees through an Executive order. The bill would also make related findings and declarations in support of this measure. The California Constitution authorizes the Governor to declare a fiscal emergency and to call the Legislature into special session for that purpose. The Governor issued a proclamation declaring a fiscal emergency, and calling a special session for this purpose, on January 8, 2010. This bill would state that it addresses the fiscal emergency declared by the Governor by proclamation issued on January 8, 2010, pursuant to the California Constitution.
