Under the new policy… all newly hired salary employees, effective immediately, will be placed on the revised five (5) step progressive pay plan. During this time, the salaried employee will only be eligible to receive the annual step progression increase on their anniversary date and will not be eligible to receive the Annual Cost of Living increase on July 1. Once the newly hired salaried employee reaches the top of their pay plan, they will be subject to receive the Annual Cost of Living (ACOL) on July 1 in the amount approved by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors. Effectively immediately, newly hired department heads: will start at an agreed upon salary and will be subject to an annual review by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors. Based on the annual review, Department Head salaries will be adjusted appropriately as determined by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors for July 1. Newly hired Department Heads will not be placed on a progressive step pay plan but will be entered into the payroll system as a “Standard” salary. 3. Current Salaried Employees, effective July 1st of this year, will no longer be eligible for both the annual progressive step increase and the annual cost of living increase on July 1. As of this coming July 1st, all current salaried employees still on a progressive step pay plan will only receive their annual step increase on their anniversary date until they reach the top of the pay plan. At which time, they will be moved to a “Standard” salary in the payroll system and will then be eligible to receive the Annual Cost of Living (ACOL) increase on July 1 as approved by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors. Current Department Head Employees (at the top of the progressive step pay plan), effective immediately, will be subject to an annual review by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors. Based on the annual review, Department Head salaries will be adjusted appropriately as determined by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors. For current Department Head Employees still in a progressive step pay plan, the Jasper County Board of Supervisors will establish a new “Standard” salary for the individual and the position. Once the salary is established, current Department Head Employees will no longer be on a progressive pay plan and subject to an annual review by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors. Based on the annual review, Department Head salaries will be adjusted appropriately as determined by the Jasper County Board of Supervisors.
