Part-time Playground Employees Now Have Rights as Classified Employees

AB 670 signed into law on September 15, 2017 deletes the exemption that exempts part-time playground employees from designation into classified service. Section 45103 of the Education Code no longer carves out an exemption for part-time playground employees. As a result, these employees are now part of classified service. This means part-time playground employees will have access to the same benefits of classified employees such as sick leave, vacations, holidays, and other rights of classified employees. Part-time playground employees will also have available to them the same union representation as classified employees.
