Qualifying ITD employees will join other state workers in sharing the benefits of a strong economy and 2005 budget surplus.
The 2005 Idaho Legislature authorized a 1 percent, one-time salary increase for state employees (H395) if the general fund balance exceeded $124 million on June 30. Estimates on June 29 placed the state’s general fund surplus at more than $200 million.
As a result, more than $17 million will be allocated to state employees throughout Idaho for the one-time salary increases.
ITD received $874,900 and will distribute the additional personnel funds according to the following criteria, explains Human Resources Manager Mary Harker:
The payments will be issued in a separate check (not direct deposit) that will be distributed on Oct. 7
Anyone with questions about the process should contact Human Resource Services.
