Sign-On and Retention Bonus Policy
The Sign-On and Retention Bonus Policy approved at the April 14, 2022 State Human Resources Commission and effective June 1, 2022, replaces the Sign-On Bonus Policy. It allows a sign-on bonus, either for a specific job classification or a specific position, as part of a program established to attract qualified candidates in critical positions that have labor market shortages, and only when it is common practice to offer a sign-on bonus to a candidate for a position to be competitive in the market.
