826. Status of employees of other governments

(a) When any

unit of government of this State acts as a receiving agency, employees of the

sending agency who are assigned under this subchapter may be considered to be

on detail to the receiving agency.

(b) Appointments

of persons so assigned may be made without regard to the laws or regulations

governing the selection of employees of the receiving agency. Such a person

shall be in the unclassified service of the State.

(c) Employees

who are detailed to the receiving agency shall not by virtue of that detail be

considered to be employees thereof, except as provided in subsection (d) of

this section, nor shall they be paid a salary or wage by the receiving agency

during the period of their detail. The supervision of the duties of those

employees during the period of detail may be governed by agreement between the

sending agency and the receiving agency.

(d) Any employee

of a sending agency assigned in this State who has a disability or dies as a

result of personal injury arising out of and in the course of that assignment,

or sustained in the performance of duties in connection therewith, shall be

treated for the purpose of the receiving agency's employee compensation

program, as an employee, as defined in its law, who has sustained the injury in

the performance of that duty, but shall not receive benefits under that law for

any period for which he or she elects to receive similar benefits as an

employee under the sending agency's employee compensation program. (Added 1967,

No. 384 (Adj. Sess.), § 6, eff. March 27, 1968; amended 2013, No. 96 (Adj.

Sess.), § 4.)
