SECTION 42-40-6



   § 42-40-6  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 authority of this

chapter may:



   (1) Be given appointments in the receiving agency covering

the periods of such assignments, with compensation to be paid from receiving

agency funds or without compensation, or



   (2) 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.



   (c) Employees who are detailed to the receiving agency shall

not by virtue of such detail be considered to be employees thereof, except as

provided in subsection (d), 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 suffers disability or death as a result of personal injury arising out of

and in the course of the assignment, or sustained in the performance of duties

in connection therewith, shall be treated for the purpose of receiving agency's

employee compensation program, as an employee, as defined in that act, who has

sustained injury in the performance of that duty, but shall not receive

benefits under that act for any period for which he or she elects to receive

similar benefits as an employee under the sending agency's employee

compensation program.
