City to revise promotion pay policy

Daily Mountain Eagle

Jasper City Council members voted Tuesday morning to eliminate the city’s current policy for promotion pay for city employees.

The issue was discussed during the council’s work session last week, and council members found the current policy could create an unfair advantage to some employees and adversely affect others.

“Our current pay policy has a potential to create pay results that would be unfair to some employees,” city clerk Kathy Chambless said. “It may be good for some employees, but it would also create some unfair results for others.”
In order to correct that, Chambless asked the council to eliminate the current policy and come back with a new policy “that will hopefully provide the intended results for an employee who is promoted to a grade that is higher than where they currently are.”

Chambless said a committee would be formed to sit down to look at a new policy that could be put into place by the next council meeting.

The new policy will be retroactive to cover any employees who fall into that category.
