Human Resources is in the final stages of reviewing employees’ prior work experience.
Currently a group of payroll, fiscal and HR staff are conducting a final review of employees’ prior work experience. These prior work experience reviewers have been trained by HR to ensure all job experience is evaluated consistently and accurately.
The next steps of this phase are outlined below.
Pay compression is when employees with significant job experience are paid nearly the same as employees with much less experience in the same job.
Vacation accrual rates will be calculated after the compression analysis is completed and implemented. The rates will go into effect retroactively to January 1, 2018.
Work that qualified and prepared an employee for their current job. The duties and responsibilities were at least 50% the same as their current job. This information will be used to calculate an
employee’s vacation leave accrual rate.
Previous jobs that are equal to an employee’s current job. These jobs required the same or equivalent levels of knowledge, skills and experience as their current job. This information will be used to determine where compression exists across the county and to make recommendations to begin addressing compression.
