STATE COMPENSATION POLICY

The State Compensation Policy was developed by a multi-agency group of experts in human resources, policy analysis and an employee association.  The policy was implemented on September 1, 2004 and revised March 1, 2010.  The policy details how pay is delivered to employees upon initial hire and for the recognition of performance of work.
