Maricopa County set aside $15 million to allow most employees to receive merit-based raises in December after five straight years without raises.
The Board of Supervisors on Wednesday voted to approve the one-time performance-based salary increases.
All county departments and agencies will evaluate which employees qualify for raises. An estimated 11,375 employees would be eligible, said MaryEllen Sheppard, assistant county manager overseeing human resources and compensation.
To be eligible, employees must work at least 20 hours a week, have been a county employee for at least a year as of next month and have a rating of “meets expectations” or higher.
