AN ACT TO PROHIBIT DISCRIMINATION OR RETALIATION IN EMPLOYMENT FOR ABSENCES OF MEMBERS OF THE CIVIL AIR PATROL PERFORMING AUTHORIZED DUTIES AND TO APPROPRIATE FUNDS FOR EMPLOYER EDUCATION.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Revises proposed GS 143B-1033, which prohibits employers from discriminating against or taking any adverse employment actions against an employee based on either the employee's membership in the NC Wing-Air Patrol, or the employee's statutorily authorized absence. Changes the meaning of an authorized absence to mean one that is required to perform duties incident to a State approved mission or US Air Force authorized mission, is no longer than seven consecutive scheduled (was, normal) working days for the employee, and which does not exceed 14 total scheduled (was, normal) working day absences for the employee in one calendar year. Eliminates the charge to the Commissioner of Labor to enforce the statute's provisions. Makes conforming organizational changes.
