Delegates Bates, Young and Fleischauer moves to amend SB275 HFIN AM 3-25 on page 49, Section 11a, line 59, following the period by inserting the following:

 

Any person, not a temporary or probationary employee, employed by the Office of Judges who is terminated or laid off as a result of the expiration of the Office of Judges shall be afforded the opportunity to apply to the Board of Review or to transfer or apply for other state employment if he or she is an employee in good standing at the time of termination or layoff. The Division of Personnel shall establish and maintain, for a period of two years, a list of all employees who were laid off or terminated by the Office of Judges pursuant to this section, and who wish to remain eligible for employment with the state. The Workers Compensation Board of Review shall give employees of the Office of Judges on the list priority for employment in an available position at the Workers Compensation Board of Review equivalent to the position that person held in the Office of Judges unless the Board of Review determines that the person is less qualified than other applicants for the position. Notwithstanding any other provision of this code to the contrary, the Division of Personnel shall give employees of the Office of Judges on the list priority to transfer to or be employed for any other state position in classified or exempt service for which the employee is qualified and applies.
