Bill summary

Makes various changes to the Temporary Solutions Program for state agency temporary employment in GS 126-63. Restricts temporary employees to an 11-month term and imposes a mandatory 31-day break in service before any additional temporary work employment. Requires the Office of State Human Resources (OSHR) to prohibit new temporary employees at any state agency owing an invoice to OSHR that is 90 days or more overdue or in excess of $200,000. Provides exceptions for full-time students, retired employees, inmates on work-release, interns, or externs, and empowers the director of OSHR to create exceptions to the requirements if they would be in the best interest of the State and would not result in extending the temporary employment past 22 months. Requires Cabinet and Council of State agencies to send a notification of the 31-day break before an employee exceeds the 11 consecutive months. Requires OSHR to report quarterly, beginning July 1, 2023, to the Joint Legislative Oversight Committee on General Government and to the Fiscal Research Division on agency compliance and policies and rules adopted under the section. Provides definitions applicable to the section. Sets out record keeping requirements.

Effective when it becomes law, and any employee at that time who has reached 11 months of temporary employment must take a 31-day break in service or be separated from employment if not covered by a exemption.
