An employing agency or department subject to the provisions of section 2 of P.L.2009, c.16 (C.40A:14-201) shall conduct a hearing on the complaint or charges within 30 days of the date on which the officer or firefighter was suspended, unless (1) the officer or firefighter agrees to waive his right to the hearing or (2) the parties agree to an adjournment to a later date. As provided in paragraphs (2) and (4) of subsection b. of section 2 of P.L.2009, c.16 (C.40A:14-201), the calendar days that accrue during any such waiver or agreement to adjourn shall not be used in calculating the date upon which the officer or firefighter is entitled, pursuant to subsection a. of section 2 of P.L.2009, c.16 (C.40A:14-201), to receive his base salary pending a final determination on the officer's or firefighter's appeal.

The calendar days that accrue between the date of the receipt of a written notice of a final disposition and the filing of an appeal shall not be used in calculating the date upon which that officer or firefighter is entitled, pursuant to subsection a. of section 2 of P.L.2009, c.16 (C.40A:14-201), to receive his base salary pending a final determination on his appeal.

d.
