OPINION ISSUED OCTOBER 4, 1989
DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
No appearance by claimant.
Janet F. Steele, Attorney at Law, for respondent.
This claim was submitted for decision based upon the allegations in the Notice of Claim and the
Claimant seeks $700.00 as she fulfilled the educational requirements for a salary increase, but was
not granted the increase. Claimant earned her Masters Degree plus fifteen hours in August 1988, but
did not receive the commensurate salary for the pay period of September 15, 1988 through December
15, 1988. The paperwork for the salary increase was not processed in the proper fiscal year;
therefore, claimant's salary was not increased.
The respondent admits the validity of the claim and that claimant is owed the sum of $666.87.
Respondent also states that there were sufficient funds in the appropriate fiscal year with which
claimant could have been paid.
In view of the foregoing and the fact the claimant agrees to accept $666.87 as full settlement of this
claim, the Court makes an award in the amount of $666.87.
Award of $666.87.
