77-1340.06. Transfer of assessment function to county; transferred employee; leave and insurance rights.(1) Each employee of the Department of Revenue transferred to a county pursuant to section 77-1340 or 77-1340.04 shall be paid for his or her accrued vacation leave hours based on his or her straight-time rate of pay and, notwithstanding section 81-1324, for twenty-five percent of the value of his or her accrued sick leave hours based on his or her straight-time rate of pay. For purposes of this subsection, straight-time rate of pay means the rate of pay in effect on June 30 of the year of transfer. The state shall reimburse employees on the date of employment transfer.(2) A transferred employee may credit years of service with both the county and state toward the accrual rate for sick leave and vacation leave plans. The transferred employee shall not receive any additional accrual rate value for county benefits until the employee meets the qualifications for the increased accrual rates pursuant to the county's requirements.(3) The transferred employee may participate in and be covered by the county's insurance program. The waiting period for medical insurance coverage of a transferred employee shall be waived, and any preexisting condition clause in the county's insurance program shall be waived if the transferred employee has health insurance under the Nebraska State Insurance Program or comparable health insurance coverage immediately prior to the date of employment transfer.
