Modifications to the State Personnel Total Compensation

Concerning modifications to the state employee total compensation philosophy, and, in connection therewith, requiring the director of personnel to establish a step pay system for state employees in the state personnel system.
2024 Regular Session
State Government
Bill Summary

Joint Budget Committee. Currently, the state personnel director (director) is required to establish survey methodologies to assess total compensation practices. Under these compensation practices, a state employee in the state personnel system (employee) may receive merit pay as part of their total compensation. The bill requires the director to establish a "step pay" structure that provides consistent salary increases for employees instead of permitting merit pay. The bill provides an exception for employees of the office of the state auditor.

The bill also repeals the requirement that employees of the division of worker's compensation and the division of labor standards and statistics in the department of labor and employment be paid on a monthly basis.
