An act to amend Section 18521.5 of, and to add Section 18803 to, the Government Code, relating to public employment.

LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST

AB 1956, Assembly Member Wilk. State civil service: Department of Technology.

The California Constitution provides that the civil service includes every officer and employee of the state, except as specified. The Constitution requires the State Personnel Board to enforce the civil service provisions and to prescribe probationary periods and classifications, adopt other rules authorized by statute, and review disciplinary actions.

Existing law, the State Civil Service Act, places various duties and authorizations on the Department of Human Resources with respect to the state civil service.

This bill would authorize the Department of Technology, subject to the approval of the board, to create and adjust classes of positions with the department, and would further authorize the department to prescribe the salary ranges for, conduct competitive examinations for, and make appointments to, these classes of positions. The bill would transfer the duties and authorizations of the Department of Human Resources with respect to these classes of positions to the Department of Technology.

Vote Required: majority Appropriation: no Fiscal Committee: yes Local Program: no

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:

SECTION 1. Section 18521.5 of the Government Code is amended to read:
18521.5.

(a)Except as otherwise provided in this section, “department” means the Department of Human Resources.

(b)With respect to any classes of positions created or adjusted pursuant to Section 18803, “department” means the Department of Technology.

SEC. 2. Section 18803 is added to the Government Code, to read:
18803.

(a)Notwithstanding any other law, but subject to the approval of the board, the Department of Technology may create and adjust classes of positions under the Department of Technology and prescribe the salary ranges for these classes of positions.

(b)Consistent with the merit principles of subdivision (b) of Section 1 of Article VII of the California Constitution, the Department of Technology may conduct competitive examinations and make appointments to classes of positions created or adjusted pursuant to subdivision (a).

(c)Nothing in this section shall be construed as authorizing the Department of Technology to create or adjust positions for independent contractors.
