Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Chicago Teacher Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that a retired teacher may be re-employed as a teacher on a temporary and non-annual basis or on an hourly basis without loss of pension, so long as the person does not accept more than $10,000 in gross compensation for that re-employment in a school year. Requires the pensioner to notify the Fund and the Board of Education of his or her intention to accept re-employment. Requires the Board of Education to certify the pensioner's status and compensation to the Fund. Requires the Board of the Fund to adopt rules for implementation. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Chicago Teacher Article of the Illinois Pension Code. Provides that a retired teacher may be re-employed as a teacher on a temporary and non-annual basis or on an hourly basis without loss of pension, so long as the person (1) does not work as a teacher for compensation on more than 100 days in a school year and (2) does not accept gross compensation for such re-employment in a school year in excess of the amount of gross compensation that would be paid for 100 days of employment at the rate for a day-to-day substitute teacher. Requires the pensioner to notify the Fund and the Board of Education of his or her intention to accept re-employment. Requires the Board of Education to certify the pensioner's status and compensation to the Fund. Requires the Board of the Fund to adopt rules for implementation. Amends the State Mandates Act to require implementation without reimbursement. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that, for a person who retires with at least 5 years of service as a principal, the return to work salary restriction is based on the daily rate normally paid to retired principals, rather than the day-to-day substitute rate.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Changes the return to work salary restriction to $30,000 in a school year or, in the case of a person who retires with at least 5 years of service as a principal, an amount equal to the daily rate normally paid to retired principals multiplied by 100.
