Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the State Employee Indemnification Act. Provides that the
Attorney General shall not determine an employee's conduct was
intentional, wilful, or wanton if the employee was not disciplined or
if the employee contested discipline and prevailed by grievance,
arbitration, or Civil Service Commission proceeding. Provides that if
the Attorney General declines to represent the employee or withdraws
and the employee prevails at trial, by motion, or by settlement or a
court or jury finds that the act or omission was within the scope of
employment and was not intentional, wilful, or wanton misconduct, the
State shall indemnify the employee for any damages awarded and court
costs and attorneys' fees assessed as part of a final and unreversed
judgment. Provides that the State shall also pay the employee's court
costs, litigation expenses, and reasonable attorneys' fees. Deletes
current provisions concerning indemnification of State employees.
