Employee Recognition and Awards
A merit increase is an annual salary increase that
is based on annual PMP reviews. The percentage of a merit increase
depends mainly on the employee's performance.
An employee may receive a lump-sum payment to recognize
either a significant, one-time accomplishment or sustained exemplary
performance. The award may be made in any amount, up to a maximum
of 10 percent of an employee's salary. A supervisor can recommend
an employee for a cash award at any time.
Special Achievement Awards
A Special Achievement Award is a lump-sum cash payment
that recognizes either an employee's accomplishments beyond normal
work expectations, or sustained superior job performance.
