Title

Repealing Toledo Municipal Code Section 2134.28 “Part-Time Employee Benefits”, enacting a new Section 2134.28 “Part-Time Employee Benefits” to eliminate the offer of pro rata health benefits for part-time employees at the Toledo Municipal Court; and declaring an emergency.

 

Body

SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:

The Toledo Municipal Court is seeking to eliminate the offer of pro rata health benefits for part-time employees in order to ensure part-time employment is attractive and feasible for seasoned public employees.

 

Summary

NOW, THEREFORE, Be it ordained by the Council of the City of Toledo:

 

                     SECTION 1.  That Toledo Municipal Code Section 2134.28, “Part-Time Employee Benefits” which states as follows:

 

Section 2134.28.  Part-Time Employee Benefits.

 

2134.28. Part-Time Employees' Benefits.

   (a)   Toledo Municipal Court Judges' Division part-time employees have no bump or recall rights.

   (b)   The following benefits shall be made available to all part-time employees, as of January 1, 1990 on a prorated basis based on actual hours worked during the preceding year:

      Sick Days

      Bonus Days

      Vacation

   (c)   Part-time employees who work a minimum of 40 hours per pay period on a regular schedule may request a package including medical, prescription, dental and vision insurance benefits, but must pay a pro rata share of their cost based upon the number of hours agreed to in advance.  The pro-rated costs assessed to the permanent part time employee is determined by dividing the established number of straight time hours for a payroll period for the respective part time position by 80.  The eligibility for holiday pay shall depend upon the Job Sharing Agreement between the job sharers, which is approved by the Court.

   (d)   Newly hired part-time employees shall be probationary employees for a period of 2,080 hours.  A probationary part-time employee eligible to purchase medical, prescription, dental and vision insurance benefits shall not receive any fringe benefits until they complete 480 hours of work.

   (e)   If a part-time employee serving the initial 2,080 hours probationary period established herein fails to work for more than 32 scheduled hours during this initial probationary period, then the employee's probationary period shall be extended by the additional number of hours the employee did not work in excess of 32.
