ARTICLE 5. SALARY INCREASE FOR STATE EMPLOYEES.


§5-5-4c. Division of Highways regional field employee pay equity salary adjustment.

(a) The Legislature hereby finds that the Division of Highways has extreme difficulty with recruiting and retaining regional field employees.

(b) The Legislature hereby directs that a pay equity salary adjustment and increase be provided to all regional field employees of the Division of Highways. This salary adjustment shall be for a total of three percent of the employee’s annual salary in effect on July 1, 2021, apportioned over a three-year period as follows:

(1) On July 1, 2021, applicable employees of the Division of Highways shall be given an increase in annual pay of one percent of the employee’s annual salary in effect on July 1, 2021;

(2) On July 1, 2022, applicable employees of the Division of Highways shall be given an increase in annual pay of one percent of the employee’s annual salary in effect on July 1, 2021; and

(3) On July 1, 2023, applicable employees of the Division of Highways shall be given an increase in annual pay of one percent of the employee’s annual salary in effect on July 1, 2021.

(c) Funding for the pay rates for employees of the Division of Highways shall be provided from the general revenue appropriations to the Division of Highways.

(d) In the event any provision of this section conflicts with any rule, policy, or provision of this code, this section shall control. Due to the limits of funding, the implementation of the pay rates and employment requirements are not subject to the provisions of §6C-2-1 et seq. of this code.  The provisions of this section are rehabilitative in nature and it is the specific intent of the Legislature that no private cause of action, either express or implied, arises pursuant to the provisions or implementation of this section.

(e) If following this pay raise, the employee makes more than the maximum allowable by the Division of Personnel for the pay grade, this salary increase still takes effect, and that employee shall make more than the pay grade maximum.

 

NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to provide regional field employees of the Division of Highways increases in annual pay.
