OSC Actions

After payroll processing for Pay Period 3L is completed, OSC will automatically insert rows in the Job Data page to reflect the 2010 salary increases for Troopers in Bargaining Unit 07 and Commissioned/Non-Commissioned Officers in Bargaining Unit 17.

  • OSC will insert a row in the employee’s Job Data record using the Action/Reason code of PAY/SAC (Pay Rate Change/Mass Salary Increase) with an effective date of 4/29/10 (Administration) for employees whose status is Active or on Paid Leave of Absence.
  • For employees who were Inactive or on a Leave of Absence without Pay on the effective date of the Increase, the Increase will be applied to the employee’s Job Data record only if the employee was subsequently returned to the payroll in an eligible bargaining unit. Rows will be inserted as of the effective date of the Return from Leave action using the Action/Reason code of PAY/CSL (Pay Rate Change/Correct Salary) and the new salary.

Any subsequent rows on the Job Data record will also be updated automatically by inserting additional rows with the Action/Reason code of PAY/CSL (Pay Rate Change/Correct Salary) provided the employee remained in an eligible bargaining unit.
