AB 275 – Probationary Period For Classified Community College Employees Shortened

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Nov 04, 2021

Under existing law, the governing board of a community college district is required to establish written rules and regulations governing the personnel management of classified service, whereby classified employees are designated permanent employees after serving a specified period not to exceed one year. This bill changes the law and provides for a shorter probationary period.

AB 275 shortens the maximum length of a classified employee’s probationary period at a community college district to 6 months or 130 days of paid service, whichever is longer. This shortened probationary period does not apply to full-time peace officers or public safety dispatchers employed by a community college district operating a dispatch center certified by the Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Trainings. Peace officers and public safety dispatchers must complete a probationary period of no less than one year from their date of appointment to that full-time position. However, the changes to the law do not apply to a conflicting collective bargaining agreement entered into before January 1, 2022, until the collective bargaining agreement expires or is renewed.

(AB 275 amends Sections 88013 and 88120 of the Educational Code.)
