Bill summary

Modifies GS 126-23 regarding required State personnel recordkeeping by each department, agency, institution, commission and bureau of the State, to require records to show the date and general description of the reasons for each promotion, demotion, dismissal, transfer, suspension, separation, or other change in position classification (dismissals, suspensions, and demotions were previously separated and required stated disciplinary reasoning). No longer describes dismissals as disciplinary action, but instead personnel action. 

Makes identical changes to the personnel recordkeeping requirements by local boards of education, community colleges, LME/MCOs, local governments, and water and sewer authorities, pursuant to the following governing statutes: GS 115C-320; GS 115D-28; GS 122C-158; GS 153A-98; GS 160A-168; and GS 162A-6.1. 

Effective December 1, 2021.
