Compensation Increase Instructions
In March 2022, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed into law an unprecedented compensation package for State of New Mexico employees. Beginning in July 2022, State of New Mexico employees who meet the following eligibility criteria will see pay increases:
- Completed their probationary period no later than June 30, 2023
- Received an overall rating of “Achieves Performance Standards” or higher on their last final evaluation
The FY23 pay raise is based on employee compa-ratio and pay band. Compa-ratio is a measure that expresses current pay rates as a percentage of range midpoints. At a minimum, eligible employees will receive a raise of 4%.
In addition to pay raises for eligible employees, all State of New Mexico employees shall be paid a minimum of $15 per hour.
