Bill summary

Senate amendment to the 2nd edition makes the following changes. Amends proposed GS 126-8.6(a) (reducing statutory barriers to employment) as follows. Directs the Office of State Human Resources (Office), under the oversight of the State Human Resources Commission (Commission) to engage in the enumerated statutory acts, rather than the Commission. Makes conforming changes to the reporting requirement so that the Office submits reports on its efforts to reduce barriers to State employment, not the Commission.

Expands the scope of practical experience and training the Office is required to assess for each position set forth GS 126-8.6(a)(2) to include on-the-job experience. Similarly expands GS 126-8.6(a)(3) to include the requirement that the Office also review jobs for which knowledge, skill, and ability requirements could be made less specific. Amends the language of GS 126-8.6(a)(4) so that the Office must remove requirements for an academic degree (was, four-year college degree) when it is not necessary for the position.
