Employees serving county and forest preserve district.
In any forest preserve district created by "An Act to provide for the
creation and management of forest preserve districts and repealing certain
acts therein named", approved June 27, 1913, as amended, whose employees
are covered by an annuity and benefit fund of which the retirement board of
the fund created by this Article is ex-officio the retirement board of the
fund provided for employees of such forest preserve district, the following
provisions shall apply where such employees render service to both the
county and such forest preserve district:
(a) Any person who shall be a contributor to the annuity and benefit
fund provided for employees of such forest preserve district who withdraws
from the service of such district, and becomes employed by such county,
shall become a contributor to the fund herein provided for, with the same
rights as he would have in the annuity and benefit fund pertaining to such
district. All sums to the credit of such employee in the annuity and
benefit fund pertaining to such forest preserve district shall be
transferred to the annuity and benefit fund for the county, to be used for
the benefit of the employee, and such employee shall thereupon cease to
have any rights in the fund provided for employees of such district.
(b) If any county employee who is on leave of absence from the service
of such county becomes employed by such forest preserve district, the
retirement board shall cause deductions to be made from his salary and such
deductions shall be credited to him in this fund to be used for the purpose
hereof. Contributions on behalf of such employee shall be made by such
county, on the same basis as if such service for such forest preserve
district had been rendered to such county, and the employee shall have the
same rights in this fund while such service is being rendered for such
forest preserve district as if it had been rendered to such county.
(c) Any person employed by such county on July 6, 1937, who was employed
by such forest preserve district prior to such date, who shall become a
contributor to this fund shall be entitled to prior service credit in this
fund for all service rendered by such employee to such forest preserve
district prior to such date.
Except as provided in this section, no person classified as an employee
of such county shall become classified as an employee of such forest
preserve district for any purpose of this Article.
