Placeholder Image
Proposed changes to the city’s current policy regarding longevity pay may not pay off for prior employees who decided to leave their jobs early.Finance Committee members accepted a second proposal by Alderman Ken Smith to make changes to the policy which would allow retiring employees to receive their longevity pay even if they leave during the year. However, they removed Smith’s desire to make the changes retroactive.According to the city’s current policy, longevity pay is to reward employees who have provided continuous service to the city. Longevity pay is awarded to all full-time employees with at least three years of continuous service up to a maximum of 30 years.
