A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §29-6-28, relating to allowing state employees to take paid leave to attend parent-teacher conference for their children .

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §29-6-28, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 6. CIVIL SERVICE SYSTEM.

§29-6-28. Paid leave for child's education.

(a) Beginning on the first day of July, two thousand five, any employee covered under the provisions of this article is eligible each year to use not more than four hours of paid leave during normal work hours to attend either:

(1) A mutually-scheduled parent-teacher conference for the
employee's child attending a public or private school in grades kindergarten through twelve; or
(2) A mutually-scheduled parent-caregiver conference for the employee's preschool-aged child attending a licensed group child care center.

(b) The employee may take paid leave for no more than two mutually-scheduled conferences per child each year. Travel time may be included in the four hours of paid leave permitted each year.

(c) The time off may not be credited against an employee's annual or sick leave benefits so long as the employee makes a reasonable, good-faith effort to schedule the time off so as to not unduly interfere with the operations of the work unit or require the applicable agency to incur additional human resources or overtime costs.




NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to allow state employees to take paid leave to attend parent-teacher conference for their children.

This section is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
