NextLevel State Work Phase 3: Compensation Study and Implementation
Beginning Oct. 16, agencies in the state's civil service will begin to use new pay plans — a general plan, and separate plans for healthcare and information technology. These changes will affect employees in agencies within the state's civil service system — with pay adjustments being realized on Nov. 9 paychecks. These new pay plans are the result of the compensation study announced as part of the NextLevel State Work initiative that was implemented at the beginning of the year to address challenges in recruitment, retention and overall employee wellness.
On this page you will find the new pay plans, a copy of the final compensation study findings in the form of a public report, and an FAQ document.
