(a) The "act" as used in this section shall mean the Federal Emergency Employment Act of 1971 (Public Law 92-54) or any similar federal law hereafter enacted to provide transitional employment in public service positions for unemployed or underemployed persons.
(b) Funds derived from the act shall not be expended for work that: (1) would otherwise have been performed at federal, state, or local expense; (2) will not result in an increase over the employment which would otherwise be available; (3) which will result in the displacement of permanent members of the classified service (including partial displacement, such as reduction in the hours of nonovertime work or wages or employment benefits); (4) or which will impair existing rights of permanent members of the classified service.
(c) If during the term of a contract or renewal thereof, executed under the act, a school district is engaged in layoffs for lack of work or lack of funds of permanent classified employees serving in regular positions and is employing personnel or contemplates employing personnel in like or reasonably similar positions under the act, a report shall be submitted by the superintendent of schools to the governing board clearly demonstrating and substantiating the fact that the duties being performed by the permanent employees in regular positions who are being laid off will not be performed by personnel employed under the act.
Approval of the report by the governing board shall constitute its acceptance of the facts, as contained therein, and based thereon its affirmation of compliance with the contract executed under the act and this section.
This section shall apply to districts which have adopted the merit system in the same manner and with the same effect as though it were a part of Article 6 (commencing with Section 45240) of this chapter.
