Subject Commissioned and Non-Commissioned State Police Officers Salary Schedule Change Based on Geographic Work Location
Purpose To explain OSC's automatic processing and to provide the agency with instructions for payments not processed automatically.
Affected Employees Commissioned and Non-Commissioned State Police Officers in BU (Bargaining Unit) 17 with a work location in New York City, Rockland and Westchester Counties, Orange, Putnam and Dutchess Counties, or Nassau and Suffolk Counties.
Background Pursuant to the Clarification of Award between New York State and the Police Benevolent Association that provides for a new Salary Schedule based on geographic work location for Commissioned and Non-Commissioned State Police Officers in Bargaining Unit 17. E
ffective 03/27/03, each Officer's Salary will be based on the Officer's work location. (This differs from previous practice, where all Officers with the same grade received the same salary regardless of their geographic work location.) Officers transferring to a different work location will now receive the salary amount applicable to that location effective the date of the transfer.
New Salary Schedule is effective 03/27/03. Retroactive payments will be made in paychecks dated 03/10/04.
OSC Action Pay Period 23 The new Salary Schedule in effect for BU 17 is based on Geographic Area (Attachment A).

OSC will review each Officer's salary in relation to the SPL (Supplemental Location) amount on the Additional Pay page to determine the Officer's geographic work location and will increase the salary to the corresponding step on the new chart.

SPL amounts are determined by the Officer's job location by county. OSC will not automatically update an Officer's salary if there is a SPL row with an Effective Date or End Date after 03/27/03.
OSC will insert a row in Job Data using the Action/Reason codes of PAY (Pay Rate Change) /CFS (Correct Fiscal Salary) effective 03/27/03 and will insert rows using the Action/Reason codes of PAY/ CSL (Correct Salary) for any eligible subsequent rows in Job Data.
Agency Actions OSC will not automatically process Officers with SPL rows in Additional Pay that have effective dates or end dates after 03/27/03.

For increases not processed by OSC, the Agency must submit Pay Rate Changes for eligible Officers using the Action/Reason codes of PAY/CFS effective 03/27/03 and update any eligible rows in Job Data after 03/27/03 using the Action/Reason codes of PAY/CSL.
Control D Report The following report will be available for agency review after the raise is processed.
