Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Chicago Teacher Article of the Illinois Pension Code. In the definition of "member", specifies that an employer may not reclassify a non-hourly employee as an hourly employee for the purpose of evading or avoiding its obligations. Provides that any certified teacher or staff employed by a corporate or non-profit entity engaged in the administration of a charter school shall presumptively be a participant in the Fund, unless the organization establishes to the satisfaction of the Board that an individual certified teacher or staff member is not working as a teacher or administrator directly or indirectly with the Charter School. Changes and imposes penalties for failure to submit payroll records and pension contributions on time. Provides that an employer in possession of member contributions deducted from payroll checks is holding Fund assets, and thus becomes a fiduciary over those assets. Requires each Charter School to appoint a Pension Officer. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.
