Reporting the Rate Increases
To ensure all Job Action requests are submitted for each employee, the agency should submit requests in effective date order from oldest date to current date. For example, if appropriate, submit the 2/13/06 Pay Change, followed by the 8/28/06 Pay Change.
To increase the hourly rate(s), the agency must submit the following requests regardless of the employee’s status:
Any Maintenance Worker hired before April 28, 2006 will be paid the new salary rates.
- For all rate increases, request a Pay Change with the Action/Reason code of Pay Rate Chg/CRT (Pay Rate Change/Change Rate) on the Job Action Request page, using the effective date of the appropriate increase, and submit the new hourly rate.
- A separate request must be made for each of the rows that exist on the employee’s Job Data page.
Any Maintenance Worker hired on or after April 28, 2006 will be paid a suppressed salary rate for two years.
Please refer to the memorandum from Carmelo Batista, Jr. for the new salary rates.
Reporting Retroactive Adjustments for All Miscellaneous Earnings
The agency must calculate and report the retroactive adjustment for all "miscellaneous earnings."
The Earnings Code AJR must be used to report the combined retroactive adjustment for all earnings. The agency must provide an explanation of the adjustment in the General Comments page or on a separate worksheet. If the agency uses a worksheet, the worksheet must be received in OSC’s Audit Section by the agency deadline for Pay Period 8C.
The Earnings Code AJR must be reported as follows:
|Earnings Begin Date:
||Enter the first date to be adjusted.
|Earnings End Date:
||Enter the last date to be adjusted.
||Enter the total amount of the adjustment.
