Background

Chapter 567 of the Laws of 2010 created the Special Commission on Judicial Compensation to examine, evaluate and make recommendations with respect to adequate levels of compensation and non-salary benefits for Judges and Justices of the state paid courts of the Unified Court System.  The Commission has recommended that all NYS Judges receive phased-in salary increases over three fiscal years.  This year’s recommended increases will become law unless modified or abrogated by statute prior to 04/01/13.

  • If the employee does not meet the eligibility criteria on 03/28/13 but becomes eligible after 03/28/13, OSC will insert a row in the Job Data record with an Effective Date equal to the date of Hire, Rehire, Position Change, Transfer or Return from Leave action and the Action/Reason code Pay Rate Change/CSL (Correct Salary).
  • If the employee has subsequent rows in an eligible position, OSC will insert a row in the Job Data record using the Action/Reason code Pay Rate Change/CSL (Correct Salary).
