Contract Wage Adjustments:
June 17 Paycheck: the $2500 Lump Sum along with the 2.5% GWI and any Step/TopStepPayment will be reflected in this paycheck.
July 15 Paycheck: will reflect all of the backpay for the 2.5% (from July 1 through May 19th) as well as the backpay for the Step Increase (December 31 through May 19th) [the increase from May 20 through June 3rd will be reflected in the June 17 paycheck].
July 29 Paycheck: will reflect the next 2.5% increase as well as the $1000 Lump Sum (these will therefore be made on-time).
Telework Schedule Requests:
Reminder, if you wish to Telework between July and December of 2022, you need to submit a Telework Schedule in May (the generic rule is that Telework Schedules need to be requested twice per year, 30 to 60 days prior to July and January).
- To submit a Telework Schedule Request use this webpage
- If your request is denied, you may use this webpage to submit an appeal
NOTE: DOT and DSS employees: although the resolution from the Labor Board does not require all employees of these agencies to re-submit a Telework Schedule Request, we STRONGLY encourage you to do so anyway based upon the past/recent conduct of these agencies in following and interpreting Telework agreements.
Healthcare Open Enrollment:
Reminder that the Healthcare Open Enrollment is occuring right now. If you wish to make changes to your medical or dental plan for next year, you need to do it before May 27, 2022. Changes can be made in CORE-CT or by submitting the CO-744A form. If you have a dependent child over age 19 who was removed from the dental plan, you can now add them back on the plan until age 26, this is new! You will need their SS# and a copy of their birth certificate.
