(By Senator Prezioso)


[Introduced February 9, 2005; referred to the Committee

on Education; and then to the Committee on Finance.]


A BILL to amend and reenact §18B-9-5 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, relating to the incremental salary increase for classified employees of higher education; and reinstating the annual incremental increase for classified employees.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That §18B-9-5 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:

§18B-9-5. Classified employee salary.
(a) Any classified employee may receive merit increases and salary adjustments in accordance with policies established by the board of governors. Merit raises may be granted only pursuant to a rule adopted by the board of governors, and approved by the chancellor. The rule shall provide a fair and equitable basis for granting merit raises pursuant to regular evaluations based upon reasonable performance standards.
(b) The current annual salary of any classified employee may not be reduced by the provisions of this article nor by any other action inconsistent with the provisions of this article. Nothing in this article prohibits promotion of any classified employee to a job title carrying a higher pay grade if the promotion is in accordance with the provisions of this article and the personnel classification system established by the appropriate governing board.
(c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, each classified employee with three or more years of experience shall receive an annual salary increase equal to fifty dollars times the employee's years of experience. These incremental increases are in lieu of any salary increase received pursuant to section two, article five, chapter five of this code and 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 and shall be paid in like manner as the annual payment to eligible state employees of the incremental salary increases based on years of service under the provisions of section two, article five, chapter five of this code.

NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to reinstate mandatory incremental salary increases for classified employees of higher education based on years of service without a cap on the number of years of service.

Strike-throughs indicate language that would be stricken from the present law, and underscoring indicates new language that would be added.
