Article 43 Legislative Leave


A regular member who is elected to the Legislature shall be granted a leave of absence from his/her duties as a member of the district by the Board of Trustees.


During the term of the leave of absence, the member may be employed by the District to perform less than full-time service for compensation, and upon terms and conditions as may be mutually agreed upon.


This absence shall not affect in any way the classification of the member.


Within six (6) months after the term of office of the member expires, the member shall be entitled to return to the position held by the member at the time of the member’s election, at the salary to which the member would have been entitled had the member not been absented from the service of the District under this section.


Notwithstanding any provision of the Education Code to the contrary, a person employed to take the place of any such member shall not have any right to the position following the return of the member to the position.
