House Bill 41 — Public employee severance pay

House Bill 41 — Public employee severance pay

Phil Haunschild
February 1, 2019

Bill description: HB 41 would prohibit any public entities in the state from paying severance pay to employees who quit voluntarily.

Rating: +1

Does it increase government spending (for objectionable purposes) or debt? Conversely, does it decrease government spending or debt?

Under current law, the State of Idaho is not allowed to give severance pay to any employee who leaves their employment voluntarily. HB 41 would extend this same prohibition to all public entities in the state. Cities, counties, school districts and others would be prohibited from providing “money, exclusive of wages or salary, vacation leave payoff, compensatory time leave, sick leave payoff, and earned administrative leave payoff” to their departing employees.

This prohibition would only apply to employees who voluntarily choose to leave their public employer.
