State Pay Plan Update: MATH the Last Hurdle
It’s good news for NM State Employees. State personnel office spokesperson Enrique Knell confirmed in today’s ABQ Journal front page story that the state is not waiting on a court enforcement order to begin issuing back pay checks.
Instead, Knell confirms that the delay is due to “time-consuming calculations necessary to determine the appropriate pay for each of the estimated 10,000 employees who qualify for a repayment.”
