ARTICLE 6 - Special Payments to Certain Persons
Pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement applicable to members of the California State University Police Department, whenever any member of that police department falling within the “law enforcement” class is disabled by injury or illness arising out of and in the course of his or her duties, he or she shall become entitled, regardless of his or her period of service with the police department, to enhanced industrial disability leave equivalent to the injured employee’s net take home salary on the date of occurrence of the injury. For the purposes of this section, “net take home salary” means the amount of salary received after federal income tax, state income tax, and the employee’s retirement contribution has been deducted from the employee’s gross salary, in lieu of disability payments under this chapter, for a period of not exceeding one year. No benefits shall be paid under this section for any psychiatric disability or any physical disability arising from a psychiatric injury.
This section shall apply only to members of the California State University Police Department whose principal duties consist of active law enforcement, and shall not apply to persons employed in the California State University Police Department whose principal duties are those of telephone operator, clerk, stenographer, machinist, mechanic, or otherwise clearly not falling within the scope of active law enforcement service, even though the person is subject to occasional call or is occasionally called upon to perform duties within the scope of active law enforcement service.
