A copy of such regulations, when issued, shall be furnished to each department, agency or institution for the guidance of appointing authorities and their employees.

Sec. 5-239a. Assignment of permanent state employees of the executive branch by the Commissioner of Administrative Services. (812)(Text)

The Commissioner of Administrative Services may establish procedures for the assignment of permanent state employees of the executive branch, including institutions of higher education encompassing technical and junior colleges as well as four-year colleges and universities, to a federal agency, to the office of the court monitor at the Department of Children and Families established in accordance with the terms of the consent decree entered in the case of Juan F. v. O'Neill, United States District Court, Docket No. H-89-859 (D. Conn. January 7, 1991), to any municipality of the state or to institutions of higher education, including private as well as public institutions and technical and junior colleges as well as four-year colleges and universities, provided that the assignment meets with the written approval of the appointing authorities of the agencies and institutions involved in the assignment of the employee. State employees may only be assigned to such agencies and institutions with their personal consent. Assignments may be made for a period of up to two years and renewed once for an additional two years, provided any assignment of an employee to the court monitor at the Department of Children and Families shall not be subject to such durational time limits and may remain effective until December 31, 2007. An employee on such assignment may be deemed to be on detail to a regular work assignment of his or her agency or institution and entitled to full salary and benefits and all rights and privileges for his class or position. Employees of a federal agency or any municipality of the state or institutions of higher education, including private as well as public institutions and technical and junior colleges as well as four-year colleges and universities, on assignment with an agency of the executive branch of state government shall serve under appointment made without regard to provisions of the general statutes regarding appointment in the classified service. The cost of any salary and benefits may be shared by the jurisdiction or be paid entirely by one or the other and shall be subject to negotiation between the agencies or institutions cooperating on the assignment. Once the agencies or institutions have agreed upon the assignment and all terms and conditions for the assignment, it shall be put into effect by a written agreement and submitted to the Commissioner of Administrative Services and the Secretary of the Office of Policy and Management for approval.
