SUMMARY AS ENACTED WITH GOVERNOR'S RECOMMENDATION: (all summaries)

State Grievance Procedure.  Eliminates certain steps in the grievance procedure by mandating that grievances following terminations due to formal discipline or unsatisfactory job performance proceed directly to a hearing. The bill also (i) allows either party to petition the circuit court to order only the implementation of the final decision of the hearing officer and not any recommendations of the hearing officer, (ii) reduces from 60 to 30 days the administrative review of the hearing decision by the Director of the Department of Human Resource Management, and (iii) removes the ability of the employee filing the grievance to have judicial review of the decision of the Director of the Department of Employment Dispute Resolution on whether the grievance qualifies for a hearing. The bill contains a technical amendment. The bill is identical to SB 417.
