TEMPORARY RULE: OAR 580-021-0030 VACATIONS AND OAR 580-021-0040 SICK LEAVE PLAN FOR UNCLASSIFIED PERSONNEL

Summary and Staff Report to the Board

The Board, in its meeting on July 20, 2001, provided its approval for OIT to accept from OHSU the academic programs of Clinical Laboratory Science (CLS) and Paramedic Education (PME). While these programs will, for an interim period, be offered on a joint basis, the agreement requires the current transfer of all employees. It is the intent of OIT and OHSU that no employees suffer adversely from this transfer. Under the Board's rules, leave balances for transferred employees can be transferred between OUS institutions. Now that OHSU is no longer an OUS institution, a modification of the current Board rule was necessary to accomplish the desired result. In order to effectuate the "no harm" transfer, current annual and sick leave balances had to be transferred and honored. At the October 19, 2001, Board meeting, the Board delegated authority to the Executive Committee to consider and approve temporary rules necessary to implement the Boards' acceptance of joint programs between OHSU and OIT. Accordingly, OAR 580-021-0030 (Vacations) and OAR 580-021-0040 (Sick Leave Plan for Academic Personnel) were proposed to the Executive Committee at the November 16, 2001, meeting for minor amendment. The Executive Committee unanimously approved the temporary rule.

Staff Recommendations to the Board

Staff recommends that the Board ratify the revision to the rules as approved by the Executive Committee on November 16, 2001. The temporary rule shall be in effect for 180 days from filing, during which time formal action for the consideration and adoption of a permanent rule shall be commenced.
