The Personnel Board of Jefferson County believes that it is important that Classified Employees are made aware of proposed legislation being sponsored in the current Alabama legislative session that could significantly impact rights of Classified Employee under the Personnel Board of Jefferson County Merit System. Three separate bills, House Bill 22 (HB22), Senate Bill 163 (SB163), and Senate Bill 203 (SB203) have been introduced that, if adopted into law, would allow for a Merit System agency/city/county to fully withdraw or partially withdraw from the Merit System through majority vote of their governing body. The Personnel Board has had no involvement in the drafting or sponsoring of these bills. To review the bills, please click the links below. Concerns, questions, or feedback related to these proposed legislative changes should be directed to your State Senator and/or House Representative.
