Section 43:8C-6 - Employment level of affected local unit.
Section: 43:8C-6: Employment level of affected local unit.
6. a. For a period of five years after the last date for retirement or termination of employment under an incentive program implemented pursuant to P.L.1999, c.59 (C.43:8C-1 et seq.), the employment level of the local unit for the provision of governmental services previously performed by employees that participated in the incentive program shall not, without the approval of the director, exceed the employment level specified in the incentive program approved by the director. The director may approve an increase in the employment level to provide the affected governmental services if the director determines that:
(1) changes in local conditions such as increased residential or commercial development, increased population, or other changes, have created an increased need or demand for the affected governmental services; and
(2) an increase in the employment level for the affected governmental services is warranted and will provide for the delivery of governmental services in an effective and cost efficient manner. The local unit shall submit annual reports to the director for five years after the last date for retirement or termination of employment under an incentive program implemented pursuant to P.L.1999, c.59 (C.43:8C-1 et seq.), in the form and manner required by the director, concerning the number of employees and the employment costs to provide the affected governmental services.
b. If a local unit exceeds the employment levels under subsection a. of this section, it shall be required by the director to reimburse the Division of Pensions and Benefits in the Department of the Treasury for the costs of the actuarial work performed for the local unit pursuant to subsection c. of section 3 of P.L.1999, c.59 (C.43:8C-3), as determined by the director of that division.
