BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

Section 1. That Article VIII of the Administrative Code of Kansas City, Missouri, relating to the Classification and Compensation Plan, is hereby amended by repealing Section 2-1104 and enacting in lieu thereof one new section of like number, to read as follows:

Sec. 2-1104. Special leave

(a)   Jury duty.  An employee may receive special leave with pay when he or she is required to serve on a jury and the hours of jury duty conflict with the hours of his or her city work. Such employees may keep the County or State jury fee; however, employees must convey his or her Federal jury fee to the City through his or her department head. In case the employee serves on a jury during his or her nonworking hours or days, the employee shall be permitted to keep the jury fee. However, the employee must inform his or her supervisor of his or her jury service. Jury leave for all regular employees allocated to classes covered by a memorandum of understanding shall be governed by the appropriate memorandum of understanding. 

(b)   Training courses.  Special leave with pay may also be granted by a department head, with the approval of the director of human resources, for the purpose of allowing a regular employee to engage in official training courses or to participate in other official activities. 

(c)   Sabbatical leave for judges of municipal court.  Upon recommendation for approval by the presiding judge and approval by the city manager, judges of the municipal court shall be granted a sabbatical leave of up to six months for purposes of full-time study or teaching directly related to the profession of law. No judge shall be eligible for such leave unless he or she has served at least three years. No judge shall be granted such leave more than once during any five-year period. Not more than one judge per fiscal year shall take sabbatical leave. During any such leave a judge shall continue to be paid by the city at the rate of one-half the regular salary and shall continue to be eligible for participation in the city health and life insurance programs, pension program and other employment benefits. 

(d) Community Partnership Initiative. Each fiscal year, any regular employee may be allowed a maximum of eight hours paid leave to volunteer with area schools, including those of their children, or to volunteer with one of the City’s approved Combined Charity organizations. The employee must timely request this leave and leave shall be granted only when it will not cause undue or unnecessary imbalances in staffing levels. Employees not participating in activities for which this leave was granted to them shall have this paid leave time changed to absences without leave and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken. The department of human resources will monitor the use of the community partnership initiative and may promulgate additional requirements in its rules and regulations.
