NC personnel law changes sought by McCrory

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The North Carolina legislature seems interested in helping Gov. Pat McCrory change laws determining how state government employees are managed, hired and fired.

A House committee scheduled a meeting Wednesday to consider significant changes to the State Personnel Act. The meeting comes a day after McCrory told Council of State members he was seeking flexibility to provide incentives to good state employees and more tools to deal with poorly-performing workers.

The Republican governor told a story Tuesday in which an employee hasn't shown up for three months and has appealed a dismissal. McCrory says the average appeal for a firing is now more than 400 days.

The General Assembly already gave McCrory's administration the ability to hire twice as many as at-will employees as predecessor Beverly Perdue.
