Current Bill Summary

SCS/SB 520 - Under current law, adoptive parents who are employed by the state or political subdivisions may take leave for purposes of arranging for the adopted child's placement or care. This act establishes the same treatment for foster parents.

The act also allows the state and political subdivisions to provide a leave sharing program for employees arranging for a foster or adopted child's placement or care. Donated annual leave, overtime, or compensatory leave time may be transferrable between employees across departments, agencies and political subdivisions with the agreement of the chief administrative officers of such departments, agencies or political subdivisions.

The Commissioner of Administration may promulgate rules that implement the new provisions.
