State Salary Structure Adjustment Information

Spectrum Volume 21 Issue 04 - September 17, 1998

Virginia Governor James Gilmore and the 1998 General Assembly have approved a 2.25-percent adjustment of the state salary structure effective Nov. 25, 1998. This will not change the salaries of employees, but will move them to a lower step on the new range. For example, if an employee's salary is now at step 10 of the salary range, it will move to step 9 after the ranges are adjusted. A table reflecting the revised salary ranges and steps are shown below.

Increases for Classified Staff Members Will Be Based on Performance Evaluation Ratings

An employee's salary will increase only if the employee receives one of the following performance-evaluation ratings:
Performance Fully Meets Expectations 2.25 percent increase (one step)
Performance Often Exceeds Expectations 4.55 percent increase (two steps)
Performance Consistently Exceeds Expectations 4.55 percent increase (two steps)
