A BILL to amend and reenact §5-5-2 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, relating to granting higher incremental salary increases to Division of Corrections' employees based on years of service.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That §5-5-2 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:
ARTICLE 5. SALARY INCREASES FOR STATE EMPLOYEES.
§5-5-2. Granting incremental salary increases based on years of service.

(a) Every eligible employee with three or more years of service shall receive an annual salary increase equal to fifty dollars times the employee's years of service: Provided, That those employees of the division of corrections shall receive an annual salary increase equal to one hundred dollars times the employee's years of service. In each fiscal year and on the first day of July, each eligible employee shall receive an annual increment increase of fifty dollars and one hundred dollars to division of corrections employees for that fiscal year.
(b) Every employee becoming newly eligible as a result of meeting the three years of service minimum requirement on the first day of July in any fiscal year, is entitled to the annual salary increase equal to fifty dollars, or one hundred dollars, times the employee's years of service, where he or she has not in a previous fiscal year received the benefit of an increment computation. Thereafter, the employee shall receive a single annual increment increase of fifty dollars, or one hundred dollars to division of corrections, for each subsequent fiscal year.
(c) These incremental increases are in addition to any across-the-board, cost-of-living or percentage salary increases which may be granted in any fiscal year by the Legislature.
(d) 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 grant the mandated increase in compensation in this section to all eligible employees prior to the consideration of any increases based on merit, seniority, promotion or other reason.


NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to increase the incremental salary for Division of Corrections employees only.
