Recommendation #2 To: Bar of California, State

To better align its compensation practices with those of comparable agencies, the State Bar should update and formalize its salaries and benefits policies by implementing an eight-hour workday and a 40-hour workweek, as well as new salary and job classifications, for its nonrepresented employees by July 2017.

60-Day Agency Response

The Board of Trustees approved implementation of new classification and salary structure and 40-hour work week for non-represented employees in two phases. As an initial step, non-represented employees hired after April 17, 2017, were subject to the new structure and work week requirement. Subsequently, the Board acted to impose the new structure and work week requirement on all existing non-represented employees effective July 17, 2017.
