On behalf of the State Universities Civil Service System, we respectfully submit our 62nd Annual Report. This Report provides an overview of our business operations, an analysis and update of our many programs/initiatives, and a brief description of our FY 2014 agency action plan. Our business objectives remain consistent with our statutory directive, our mission, and our purpose. This Report again demonstrates our commitment and effort to incorporate many 'best practice' human resource concepts into our operational procedures and to modernize the overall delivery of human resource services to the State of Illinois public university system.
As you are probably aware, return to work provisions for SURS retirees were revised through the passage of Senate Bill 2196 and signed into law as Public Act 98-0596 by Governor Quinn on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. Some significant changes that were developed and successfully included in the new law are as follows:
1. Establishment of a common academic year (September 1) for tracking purposes.
2. Removal of the 18-week limitation.
3. Exception to the 40% threshold and financial consequences if the retiree’s position is governed by the State Universities Civil Service Act (110 ILCS 70).
