The CalPERS Board of Administration has announced it will publicly discipline one of its members at a special session on Wednesday afternoon.
The agenda item (embedded below) was added this afternoon. It doesn't name the board member. We have e-mailed CalPERS and left a message with its press relations department to see if we can get more details.
CalPERS' special session announcement comes just a week after at-large board member J.J. Jelincic lost his bid to overturn a reprimand he received for sexually harassing CalPERS coworkers while he was working in the fund's investments office.
Jelincic contended the complaints that led to the action against him were either founded on misunderstandings or orchestrated by a CalPERS management that was uncomfortable with his dual role as board member and employee. He appealed the reprimand to the State Personnel Board and lost.
Jelincic no longer works as a CalPERS investment officer. On July 1, the fund released him to work full time on board business. He couldn't be reached for comment this afternoon.
