A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §5-5-6, relating to a monetary incentive for eligible employees.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §5-5-6, to read as follows:
ARTICLE 5. SALARY INCREASE FOR STATE EMPLOYEES.
§5-5-6. Granting monetary incentive to eligible employees during fiscal year two thousand eight.

(a) Every eligible employee employed on the first day of August, two thousand seven who has seven months or more of service as of the first day of August, two thousand seven shall receive a monetary incentive for the purpose of recruitment, retention, and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of public service.
(b) The monetary incentive shall be provided in an amount equal to two and one-half percent of the base salary of the eligible employee as of the first day of August, two thousand seven: Provided, That the minimum monetary incentive provided under this section shall be six hundred dollars and the maximum monetary incentive provided under this section shall be twelve hundred dollars.
(c) The monetary incentive provided under this section shall be provided in one payment after the thirty-first day of July, two thousand seven but prior to the thirty-first day of December, two thousand seven on a date selected by the Auditor of the State of West Virginia.
(d) This monetary incentive is in addition to any across-the-board, cost-of-living or percentage salary increases which may be granted by the Legislature, or incremental salary increase based on years of service in accordance with the provisions of section two of this article.
(e) This section shall not be construed to prohibit other pay increases based on merit, seniority, promotion or other reason, if funds are available for the other pay increases: Provided, That the executive head of each spending unit shall first consider the mandated increase in compensation for all eligible employees in this section in providing any increases based on merit, seniority, promotion or other reason.


Note: The purpose of this bill is to provide a one-time, monetary incentive for eligible employees for the purposes of recruitment, retention, and improving the quality of service provided by the State of West Virginia.

§5-5-6 is new; therefore underscoring and strike-throughs have been omitted.
