With limited exceptions, current law limits the number of service
retirees that a state college or university or an employer in the school or
Denver public schools division of the public employees' retirement
association (PERA) can hire without a reduction in the service retirees'
benefits to 10 service retirees when an employer determines there is a
critical shortage of qualified candidates. The bill allows an employer to
hire such service retirees when the employer determines there is a need.
In addition, the bill authorizes an employer in the school or Denver
public schools division with a student enrollment above 10,000 to hire,
without a reduction in service retirees' benefits, an additional service
retiree for each 1,000 students enrolled above 10,000. An employer with
10,000 students or less will continue to be allowed to hire 10 service
retirees. The bill requires an employer in the school or Denver public
schools division to provide PERA with a list of all employed service
retirees by September 1 of an applicable calendar year.
