BILL NUMBER:S5707

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the civil service law, in relation to suspension or demotion
upon the abolition or reduction of positions for labor class titles

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To allow employees, who have been
promoted pursuant to New York Civil Service Law Section 52(14), the
ability to revert back to their underlying non-competitive or labor
class title.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Civil Service Law Section 52(14) would
be amended to add a single sentence as follows: Any employee promoted
pursuant to this section shall be permitted to revert back to their
underlying non-competitive or labor class title

JUSTIFICATION:
Service Law § 52(14) was intended to allow
non-competitive and labor class employees, consistent with the manner
competitive class employees are treated in similar circumstances, the
ability to revert back to their underlying civil service title. The
proposed amendment makes that intention explicit. The amendment
ensures that employees, whose experience in a non-competitive and/or
labor class title enabled their promotion, will not forfeit the right
and privilege to revert back to their underlying title. The ability
to revert back to an underlying title is crucial in the event of
layoff, furlough or other staff reduction.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately upon signing

AN ACT to amend the civil service law,  in  relation  to  suspension  or

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

  14.  Notwithstanding  any other provision of law, in a city containing
more than one county, the municipal civil service  commission  may,  for
titles  designated  by it, extend to employees in the service of a civil
division or public authority under its jurisdiction who  are  holding  a
position in the non-competitive class or the labor class of such service
the  same  opportunities  as  employees in the competitive class to take
promotional examinations for which such non-competitive class  or  labor
class service is determined by the municipal civil service commission to
be  appropriate  preparation.    ANY  EMPLOYEE PROMOTED PURSUANT TO THIS
SECTION SHALL BE PERMITTED TO REVERT BACK TO THEIR  UNDERLYING  NON-COM-
PETITIVE OR LABOR CLASS TITLE.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
