(a) For purposes of local coverage, "full-time" shall mean:

1. Employment of any eligible employees who appear on a regular payroll and who receive a salary or wages for an average of the number of hours per week as prescribed by the governing body of the participating employer. Each participating employer shall, by resolution, determine the number of hours worked, which shall be considered to be "full-time." In no case shall the number of hours for "full-time" be less than 25.

2. The employer, at its option, may grandfather all employees who were eligible for coverage under the location's previous definition of "full-time."

3. Sabbaticals where the compensation paid is 50 percent or more of the salary granted just prior to the leave and the period of eligibility terminates with the end of the fiscal year.

(b) Where an otherwise eligible employee elects a voluntary furlough, as authorized by P.L. 1993, c. 297 for State employees and extended to local employers pursuant to 4A:6-1.2 3(b), coverage shall continue with the employer paying the costs as if the member were an active employee, provided that the employee remits in advance to the employer the amount required, if any, as the employee's contribution for coverage.
