Legislation creates:Neither Program nor Fund
Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.
|This legislation will have no impact on the revenue of the state of West Virginia. It will create an additional expense for state government. By providing salary increases for Correctional Employees it will increase the cost of salaries but will help reduce turnover in future years. This will help decrease overtime and training costs in future years.|
|Effect of Proposal||Fiscal Year|
|1. Estmated Total Cost||0||610,000||60,000|
|Repairs and Alterations||0||0||0|
|2. Estimated Total Revenues||0||0||0|
3. Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):
The above estimate is based on the current employees and assumes that every employee that qualifies for the salary increase will still be employed when the legislation becomes effective. The estimate includes the cost of the salary and related fringe benefits. The legislation would have a greater impact every third year (2008, 2011, 2014, Etc) since the legislation provides for salary increases every three years after the initial increase is granted. After Fiscal Year 2011 the effect will be increased because staff will be receiving the two year adjustment and the five year adjustment.
| The one area that would need to be addressed is whether employees that transfer between the Division of Corrections and the Division of Juvenile Services will continue to earn service time toward this salary increase or will the service time reset with each transfer.
