FUNDING: N/A
Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On July 17, 2018, the County received audit findings from the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS). The findings found the County to be out of compliance with CalPERS reporting requirements, Government Code sections 20636 and 7522.34(a), as well as California Code of Regulations 570.5.

The audit findings noted that the County’s salary schedules and changes thereto must be approved and adopted by the County’s Board of Supervisors (Board), irrespective of previously approved Board actions/resolutions that affected changes to the salary schedules. These changes include the following:

· New Classifications
· Abolished Classifications
· Classification Title Changes
· New and Revised Salaries
· New and Revised Bargaining Units (Representation Groups)
· New and Revised Job Class Numbers

Human Resources and County Counsel met with CalPERS to discuss an efficient process to have the salary schedule adopted by the Board that would not require adoption each time there was a Board approved change. As a result of such, Human Resources is requesting that the Board adopt the last salary schedule in 2020 (effective December 19, 2020), which encompasses all previous Board approved actions/resolutions that affected the 2020 salary schedule.

ALTERNATIVES
In order for the County to be in compliance with the abovementioned CalPERS reporting requirements, Government Code, and California Code of Regulations, there is no alternative.
