Memo

BILL NUMBER:S4247

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to transfer opportunities for employees serving in items classified under sections 55-b and 55-c of such law

Purpose of the Bill:

This bill would amend the Civil Service Law (CSL) to permit transfers of Civil Service §§ 55-b and 55-c appointees to competitive class positions.

Summary of Provisions:

Section 1 of the bill would amend CSL § 55-b (2) to afford people with disabilities hired under that section the same opportunity to transfer as provided to employees in the competitive class.

Section 2 of the bill would amend CSL § 55-c (2) to afford disabled veterans hired under that section the same opportunity to transfer as provided to employees in the competitive class.

Section 3 of the bill provides that the bill shall take effect immediately.

Prior Legislative History:

This is a new bill.

Statement in Support:

The CSL §§ 55-b and 55-c programs are important avenues to State employment for individuals and veterans with disabilities. This proposal would provide transfer opportunities to employees appointed to positions classified as non-competitive under CSL §§ 55-b and 55-c, increasing the opportunity for these employees to move into the competitive class, and opening up vacancies for appointment under these sections of the civil service law.

Fiscal Implications:

None.

Effective Date:

This bill would take effect immediately.
