Higher Education Employment Contract Terms

Concerning employment contracts for positions at institutions of higher education that are funded by revenue generated from auxiliary activities.
2017 Regular Session
Higher Education
Labor & Employment
Bill Summary

Under current law, institutions of higher education are limited in the number and length of term employment contracts or contract extensions that the institution can award. In addition, institutions are prohibited from providing postemployment compensation or benefits to a government-supported employee after the individual's employment has ended, except in limited situations and in limited amounts. Further, under current law, the terms of government-supported employment contracts are generally available for public inspection.

For state institutions of higher education, the bill exempts the institution's employee positions that are funded by revenues generated through auxiliary activities, as defined in the bill, from the provisions of current law.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
