Pay Changes Effective June 14, 2009

Pending approval of the Executive Directive, the following pay actions will occur for positions and/or employees on the Classified Pay Plan.

Minimum Wage
Due to federal changes to the minimum wage, pay grades 005 and 006 will be removed from the Classified Pay Plan effective June 14, 2009. Job Classes on grade 005 (Seasonal Worker and Foster Grandparent (State)) will move to grade 007; those on grade 006 (Seasonal Worker Senior and Lifeguard) will move to grade 008. Employees whose current hourly rate is below step 4 of the new grade will move to the new step 4. All others will move to a new step whose hourly rate is the same as the hourly rate on their current grade (in other words, with no increase).

Pay Grade Changes For Market Adjustments
The Legislature authorized pay grade changes and/or step increases for specified job classes in the classified service effective June 14, 2009. A list of the affected classifications and adjustment amounts is available at: http://www.da.ks.gov/newpayplans/2010marketadjustments.pdf

The increases will be implemented through pay grade change and step increase(s); pay grade change and employee moves step-to-step; or step increase(s) only with no grade change. The details will be available in an upcoming Executive Directive.

The Divisions of Personnel Services and Information Systems and Communication are developing a method to process these changes in SHARP for the positions and employees. We will send another message with implementation details as soon as possible.

This update will not include Regents Institutions. These agencies will process their own employees.

Please contact Patti Pearce at 785-296-7232 or at patti.pearce@da.ks.gov if you have questions.
