Capitol News: New Huff Measure Would Shorten Layoff Notification Lead Time
Sen. Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Walnut) has introduced a measure that would change the current preliminary and final layoff notification deadlines of March 15 and May 15 to new dates of June 1 and August 1.
The current deadlines give employees a reasonable opportunity to find work in other districts that may have openings. Deadlines proposed in SB 559
would mean teachers, librarians, nurses, counselors, and other certificated personnel could have as little time as two weeks to find a newposition elsewhere.
CTA State Council will review this bill next month. The Association's policy-making body has opposed previous attempts to shorten the notification period.
