From the Desk of the Chief Steward: Juvenile Hall Incentive Payment

Dear Members,

On April 7, 2023, an email communication was sent regarding new incentives for staff who provide full-time direct supervision to youth within the juvenile halls. These incentives will allow the Department to pay a lump sum bonus based on the number of hours worked during the commitment term(s), as shown below:

  • 1,000 Hours worked within 6 months (April 1, 2023, to September 30, 2023) – Flat Payment of $3,500

  • 1,500 Hours worked within 9 months (April 1, 2023, to December 31, 2023) – Flat Payment of $3,500

  • 2,000 Hours worked within 12 months (April 1, 2023, to March 31, 2024) – Flat Payment of $10,000

Some members have not received the bonus because some time sheets that are required to calculate the bonus are missing.

If you have provided full-time direct supervision to youth within the juvenile halls and have not received your bonus, it is urgent that you check to be sure that all of your timesheets are put into the system and that you provide any missing timesheets ASAP.

Please refer to the following Department instructions for details on the process needed to receive your bonus.
