State Employees to Receive Pay Increase This Week

 Roughly 26,000 state employees will be getting a pay raise this week.

The distribution of the state’s pay for performance will appear on this week’s paycheck. Employees who were evaluated as outstanding will receive an eight percent increase, those who exceed expectations will earn a five percent raise, a three percent raise will be given to those who meet expectations, and employees who do not meet expectations will not get an increase.

About $38 million in pay increases will be distributed to those employees who qualify. The overall increase is 3.1 percent.

Former Governor Mitch Daniels authorized the pay increase to recognize the work of state employees throughout last year.
