SD Lawmakers Urge State Policy On Employee Bonuses

December 7, 2011, 11:19 AM by Karen Sherman

SD Lawmakers Urge State Policy On Employee Bonuses
PIERRE, SD - South Dakota lawmakers say state government should develop a general policy to control how bonuses are given to state workers who do outstanding work.
 
Members of the Government Operations and Audit Committee on Wednesday said such a policy would avoid the problems that arose when the state Health Department gave $500 bonuses to 155 employees
who worked to fight the swine flu threat.

A state audit found that the bonuses paid from a federal grant were not allowable under federal rules because the Health Department did not have a plan in place to apply bonuses consistently for all programs.

State Personnel Commissioner Sandy Zinter says she will consider the lawmakers' suggestions, but such bonuses are rare. She says agencies should consider including possible bonus payments in applications for federal grants.
