Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Municipal Code. Provides that in a municipality having a population less than 1,000,000, a firefighter who is required to be a paramedic as a condition of employment may be placed on an additional 18-month probationary period. Provides that during the additional period, the firefighter may be discharged without a hearing solely for failure to pass the paramedic examination. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Adds reference to:
65 ILCS 5/10-1-7from Ch. 24, par. 10-1-7
70 ILCS 705/16.13bfrom Ch. 127 1/2, par. 37.13b

Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Illinois Municipal Code and the Fire Protection District Act. Provides that in certain municipalities and fire protection districts, the probationary employment period may be extended beyond 12 months for a firefighter who is required, as a condition of his or her employment, to be a certified paramedic, but the firefighter may only be discharged without a hearing during the extended probationary period if the firefighter fails to meet the paramedic certification requirements (now, the probationary period limitation does not apply to a fireman whose position also includes paramedic responsibilities). Effective immediately.
