Section 365. Merit or longevity increases

2 AAC 07.365. Merit or longevity increases

(a) Merit or longevity increases may be granted or withheld based upon the appointing authority's evaluation of an employee's performance.

(b) A merit or longevity increase of one step in the salary range shall be given on the merit or longevity anniversary date to an employee whose performance is considered "acceptable" or better and of progressively greater value to the state unless the appointing authority takes proactive action to deny a merit or longevity increase documented in a performance evaluation before the merit or longevity anniversary date. Any monetary increase shall be effective on the merit or longevity anniversary date.

(c) If an employee receives an overall performance evaluation of "Outstanding," a merit increase of two steps in the range may be given on the merit anniversary date at the discretion of the appointing authority. No merit increase may place an employee at a higher salary level than the top merit step of the employee's assigned salary range.

(d) A merit increase may be withheld if the employee has received an overall performance rating of "Low Acceptable" or "Unacceptable". An appointing authority may grant a merit increase when one has been withheld once the employee demonstrates improved performance resulting in a new evaluation with an overall performance rating of "Acceptable" or better. Such increase is effective the first day of the pay period after the employee's performance evaluation documenting the improved performance is signed by the division director.
