AN ACT ALLOWING ADJUNCT FACULTY MEMBERS OF CHARTER OAK STATE COLLEGE TO WAIVE MEMBERSHIP IN A STATE RETIREMENT PLAN

SUMMARY: This act allows adjunct faculty members of Charter Oak State College to irrevocably waive participation in a state employee retirement plan within 60 days after beginning employment. Adjunct faculty members of regional community-technical colleges may already do this under existing law.

The waiver remains irrevocable if the adjunct faculty member accepts subsequent part-time employment with any public higher education institution in Connecticut. This condition applies under existing law to adjunct regional community-technical college faculty who waive participation in a state employee retirement plan. (If the faculty member becomes a full-time employee, he or she can join a state retirement plan at that time. )

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2013
