Current Bill Summary

SB 798 - This act requires the state to award extra vacation time to employees who participate in mentoring programs for children. It creates a new section which requires the State of Missouri to award one extra week of vacation to state employees for at least 120 hours per year of participation in a volunteer mentoring program for children. Employees must have worked for the state at least one year to be eligible for this benefit, which is subject to approval by the Office of Administration. The mentoring program must provide a list of participating employees and must certify their participation. No additional vacation will be granted to those employees who do not satisfy the state's or the program's time requirements. The mentoring program chosen will retain full responsibility of its operations and no state employee volunteer activities may be performed on state time.
