2015 SB 744 provides that under the Wisconsin Retirement System, a protective occupation participant whose principal duties involve active law enforcement may not receive a duty disability benefit if all of the following occur:
- the participant was injured while performing his or her duty in violation of law or any policy or protocol established by his or her employer,
- the violation of law or any policy or protocol established by his or her employer that resulted in a situation that required the use of force, and
- at the time the participant was injured, an individual died or suffered serious bodily harm as a result of the actions of the participant.
The bill also applies this same provision to any retirement system of a county with a population of 500,000 or more and to any retirement system of a first class city.
This bill has not been scheduled for a public hearing.
