Valeria Headen v. Jersey City Board of Education (A- 17-11; 068598)


 Valeria Headen v. Jersey City Board of Education (A-
17-11; 068598)
The Civil Service Act’s paid vacation leave provisions
apply to career service, non-teaching staff employees
of school districts that have opted to be part of the
civil service system, including ten-month employees
such as Valeria Headen. Because the Act and its
implementing regulations establish a floor for the
amount of leave to be provided to such employees and a
collectively negotiated agreement provided Headen with
more than the minimum paid vacation leave to which she
was entitled under the Act, this matter was properly
dismissed. 11-15-12
