Employee Compensation


Page 564, line 33, after "range" insert:

"except if the new hire was employed in a state classified position, then the Governor may exceed the maximum salary for the position and set the salary for the employee at a salary level not to exceed the employees salary at their prior state position."


(This amendment clarifies that an individual promoted from a state classified position to an agency head position will not automatically be subject to a pay reduction if their prior position salary exceeds the maximum salary range for the agency head position. For example, if a physician is promoted to agency head, his or her salary can be maintained at the previous level.)
