Virginia Administrative Code
Title 22. Social Services
Agency 40. Department of Social Services
Chapter 675. Personnel Policies for Local Departments of Social Services

22VAC40-675-90. Local compensation plans.

A. A local department, upon approval by the local board, shall have flexibility in developing the local compensation plan to select salary ranges within the approved state compensation plan that are suitable to local situations. The range for each occupational title shall provide local minimum and maximum rates. The local plan shall ensure that local minimum salary rates do not fall below the state compensation plan minimum salary for that occupational title. A request to modify salary ranges within the state minimum and maximum rates does not constitute a deviation as described in 22VAC40-675-110.

B. A local compensation plan shall include policies and procedures for awarding salary increments, merit increases, special compensation for child and adult protective service work, employee or position status changes, and any other type of approved increases. Salary determinations shall be rendered in a fair and consistent manner to ensure equal pay for equal work.

C. All requested position actions by local departments must be reviewed and approved by the department prior to implementation.

D. Midyear changes to the local compensation plan must be submitted to the department for review and approval.

E. Local compensation policies and practices shall comply with federal and state laws including the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (29 USC § 201 et seq.), the administrative manual, and procedures provided by the department.
