§25-1-11d. Compensation of employees approved by commissioner;
traveling and other expenses; payment of salaries.
The commissioner of corrections shall approve the salaries of
all employees of the division of corrections. Salaries shall be
commensurate with their duties and responsibilities, but no meals
or other emoluments of any kind shall be furnished, given or paid
to the employee as all or part of their salary. The employees may
be provided meals, household facilities and supplies as may be
necessary for them to perform their duties, if the employees agree
to pay the reasonable cost as established by the commissioner of
corrections. In the event of an emergency, such as a riot or other
disturbance, the commissioner may authorize meals be provided to
employees at no cost. Additionally, the commissioner may establish
a procedure to reimburse employees reasonable costs in the event
the employee's personal property is stolen or damaged by an inmate.
All persons employed under this article are entitled to be
reimbursed for necessary traveling and other expenses. The
salaries, expenses and appropriations provided for the employees
under the commissioner's jurisdiction shall be paid in the same
manner as are those of other state employees and agencies and on a
payment schedule set forth by the state auditor.
