New Huff Measure Would Shorten Layoff Notification Lead Time

 

Sen. Republican Leader Bob Huff (R-Walnut) has introduced a measure that would change the preliminary layoff notification March 15 deadline and the final May 15 layoff notice to June 1 for the preliminary and August 1 for final notification.
 
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 new position elsewhere.
 
CTA State Council will review this bill next month, but has opposed previous attempts to shorten the notification period.
