Alabama Judge Stops 2-year System Employee Plan

October 3, 2008

A Montgomery, Ala. circuit court judge barred the two-year college system from changing the classification of 140 employees in a way that would remove their tenure benefits.

Post-secondary officials sought to move the employees from a Skills Training Consortium on Oct. 1, the start of the state’s new fiscal year, and put them under the two-year system instead. The change would remove the employees from protections under the Fair Dismissal Act and alter their insurance benefits.

Circuit Judge Truman Hobbs Jr. filed the order Sept. 30 barring the system from moving the employees or attempting to make them waive their Fair Dismissal rights.
