SUBJECT: Change in the Classification & Compensation Plan

CASINO CONTROL COMMISSION
The New Jersey Casino Control Commission requests changes to the system used to classify and compensate their unclassified staff members.

The Commission was created in 1977 to regulate legalized casino gambling in New Jersey. Commission employees, with the exception of secretarial and clerical positions, are unclassified, confidential employees. Professional staff face unique and stringent restrictions as conditions of employment. Employees are paid pursuant to the Gaming Regulator Compensation System, which has been revised several times since its inception in 1992 in an attempt to accommodate staffing needs. The Commission experiences difficulty in attracting and retaining qualified candidates with their existing compensation plan. The existing plan has also resulted in numerous parity and morale issues.

The Commission worked with representatives from this Department to develop a fair and efficient compensation system with the flexibility to meet their needs. The proposed classification and compensation system plan consists of seven occupational groups: Administration, Legal, Accounting/Finance, MIS Specializations, Public Information, Administrative Specializations and Inspection. Each group will consist of one or more levels and the necessary bands within levels. Salaries are based on comparable salary ranges in the equally exempt bargaining group (X). The existing Gaming Regulator titles will be inactivated once all incumbents are transferred to the new titles.
