3210 - Commercial Driver's License (CDL)
Layton City will pay the costs of obtaining a CDL for all employees in positions which have the CDL as a job requirement. This includes the costs for the tests and the cost of physical examinations to obtain and maintain the DOT medical card.
Each department is required to maintain a current list of positions within each department which require a CDL, as well as any necessary endorsements. Layton City will pay for required endorsements, i.e. tanker, hazardous materials, etc., but will not pay for endorsements which are not required by the employee's position with the City. By Federal law, fire fighters are exempted from the requirement for a CDL.
If an employee obtains a CDL and leaves the employment of the City before the expiration of that license, the pro-rated costs of obtaining the CDL associated with the time after the employee leaves the City may be due from the employee to the City as determined by the employee's department director and the City Manager. Any amount due may be paid directly by the employee or will be deducted from the employee's final paycheck.
