ARTICLE 5. SALARY INCREASE FOR STATE EMPLOYEES.
§5-5-6. Division of child protective services pay equity salary
The Legislature hereby directs that a pay equity salary
adjustment be provided employees of the Division of Child
Protective Services. This salary adjustment shall be provided from
the funding appropriated to the Division in the fiscal year two

appropriations from the Legislature.
In the event any provision of this section conflicts with any rule, policy or provision of this code, the provisions of this

funding, the results of the pay equity salary adjustments are not
subject to the provisions of article six-a, chapter twenty-nine of
this code. The provisions of this section are rehabilitative in
nature and it is the specific intent of the Legislature that no

pursuant to the provisions or implementation of this section.
