A BILL to amend and reenact §6-7-1 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, relating to pay periods for officers and employees of the state, state institutions of higher education and the Higher Education Policy Commission.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That §6-7-1 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:

ARTICLE 7. COMPENSATION AND ALLOWANCES.

§6-7-1. State officials, officers and employees to be paid at least twice per month; new employees paid in arrears; effective date.

    All full-time and part-time salaried and hourly officials, officers and employees of the state, state institutions of higher education and the Higher Education Policy Commission shall be paid at least twice per month, and under the same procedures and in the same manner as the State Auditor currently pays agencies: Provided, That on and after July 1, 2002, all new officials, officers and employees of the state, a state institution of higher education and the Higher Education Policy Commission, statutory officials, contract educators with higher education and any exempt official who does not earn annual and sick leave, except elected officials, shall be paid one pay cycle in arrears. The term new employee does not include an employee who transfers from one state agency, a state institution of higher education or the Higher Education Policy Commission to another state agency, another state institution of higher education or the Higher Education Policy Commission without a break in service. Nothing contained in this section is intended to increase or diminish the salary or wages of any official, officer or employee.



    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to allow the state to pay its employees every two weeks instead of twice per month.
