6.5 Remedial Process

Manual: Exemption Procedures

Subsection: Accountability for Exemption Authorization

Upon the recommendation of the Executive Director of the University System office, or upon its own initiative, the Merit Board may take any necessary corrective or remedial action in an attempt to resolve incorrect exemption authorization issues revealed through biennial employer audits and/or quarterly exemption reports. Such corrective or remedial action may take any specific form, as designated by the Merit Board, and will be based on the pattern of severity and history of the noncompliance issue(s). However, no remedial action that would result in inference with an employment contract will be required during the term of the contract. Consequently, remedial action concerning a contractual employee would only take effect at the expiration of the contractual term and prior to the contractual renewal date.

Pursuant to the Act and Code, the Merit Board may delegate its remedial authority to the Executive Director in whole or in part. Section 36d(1) of the Act authorizes the Merit Board to approve a classification plan and delegate to the Executive Director the responsibility of assigning civil service positions to the appropriate classification (see 110 ILCS 70/36d(1)). The Executive Director is also charged with the responsibility to conduct audits of system employers to ensure compliance with all provisions of the Act and Code and to contend with issues revealed through audit reports as directed by the Merit Board (see 80 Ill. Adm. Code §250.140(c)). Section 250.140(a) of the Code further provides that the Executive Director has all the authority required to implement the Act and Code and that the Merit Board may delegate any of its authority to the Executive Director by specific authorization of the Merit Board (see 80 Ill. Adm. Code §250.140(a)).
