Current Bill Summary

SB 304 - This act alters statutes regarding military leave for Kansas City police officers and civilian employees. Members of the Police Retirement System of Kansas City and the Civilian Employees' Retirement System of the Police Department of Kansas City who are on leave of absence due to military service in which the United States has declared war, a compulsory draft, or the combat mobilization of any units of the military reserves are entitled to service credit for the time spent in the military service. During their military service, members are not required to pay any member contributions into the retirement system.

Should it becomes necessary for the years of the service to be included in the calculation of the member's compensation, the member will be deemed to have received the same compensation throughout the period of service as the member's base annual salary immediately prior to the commencement of the leave of absence.

Eligible members who are absent because of the military leave are entitled to federal employment and re-employment rights.
