Effective January 1, 2015, two new Education Code sections, 87784.5 and 88207.5, will authorize academic and classified community college employees to use up to thirty days of paid leave in a school year within the first year of the birth or adoption of a child. (Assembly Bill 1606.) Currently, academic employees are permitted to use up to six days of earned leave for reasons of personal necessity or compelling personal importance and classified employees are permitted to use up to seven days of earned leave for reasons of personal necessity. These rules are unchanged, but the new Education Code sections allow employees to use additional days up to a total of thirty in the first year of the birth or adoption of a child. If these new provisions conflict with the terms of a collective bargaining agreement in effect before January 1, 2015, the provisions shall not apply to the employer and employees subject to that agreement until the agreement expires or is renewed.
