Salaried faculty and staff to receive state bonus on Dec. 1
From: Human Resources
As authorized by the 2022 state budget, a one-time bonus of $1,000 will be paid on Dec. 1, 2022 to eligible state employees. For Virginia Tech, the bonus applies to salaried faculty and staff meeting the following criteria:
- Employees must have been employed as of Aug. 10, 2022 and remain employed through Nov. 10, 2022. This includes employees who have transferred from another state agency without a break in service.
- Staff employees must have received a performance rating of “developing” or higher on their most recent performance review.
- Staff and faculty employees must have no active written notices or sanctions within the preceding 12-month period from Nov. 10, 2021 – Nov. 10, 2022.
The bonus is subject to applicable federal and state taxes, and will be prorated for salaried employees based on percent of time worked. For example, a salaried employee who works 100 percent of the time in a salaried role will receive $1,000 before taxes; a salaried employee who works 75 percent of the time in a salaried role will receive a $750 bonus before taxes.
Employees who are on short-term disability or other paid leave will receive the bonus on Dec. 1, 2022. Employees on leave without pay are not eligible for the bonus until they return to work.
If you have questions about the bonus, please contact your supervisor or college or department HR representative.
