Proposed Legislation Regarding Classified Employee Layoffs

Assembly Bill 1908 was introduced into the legislative process on February 22, 2012. AB 1908 seeks amendments to Education Code sections 45117 and 88017 to increase, from 45 days to 60 days, the layoff notice requirement for classified school employees working in California’s public school and community college districts.

This bill was passed by the Assembly on April 26, 2012, and currently resides with the Senate Committee on Education. If AB 1908 is passed by the Senate before September 1, 2012, and approved by the Governor, it will become effective January 1, 2013. As a result, any classified layoffs implemented in 2013 and thereafter may be affected.
