Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill establishes a pay progression plan for assistant district attorneys,
which was required under 2011 Wisconsin Act 32. Under the bill, the pay progression
plan consists of 17 hourly salary steps, with each step equal to one-seventeenth of
the difference between the lowest hourly salary and the highest hourly salary for the
salary range for assistant district attorneys contained in the compensation plan. The
first step equals the lowest hourly salary rate for the salary range and the last step
equals the highest hourly salary rate for the salary range. The pay progression plan
shall be based entirely on merit.
Under the bill, on July 1, 2013, all assistant district attorneys who have served
with the state as assistant district attorneys for a continuous period of 12 months or
more, and who are not paid the maximum hourly rate, must be paid an hourly salary
at the step that is immediately above their hourly salary on June 30, 2013. All other
assistant district attorneys, who are not paid the maximum hourly rate, must be paid
an hourly salary at the step that is immediately above their hourly salary on June
30, 2013, when they have served with the state as assistant district attorneys for a
continuous period of 12 months.
In addition, under the bill, on July 1, 2014, and on each July 1 thereafter, all
assistant district attorneys who have served with the state as assistant district
attorneys for a continuous period of 12 months or more, and who are not paid the
maximum hourly rate, may, at the discretion of their supervising district attorney,

be paid an hourly salary at any step above their hourly salary on the immediately
preceding June 30. All other assistant district attorneys, who are not paid the
maximum hourly rate, may, at the discretion of their supervising district attorney,
be paid an hourly salary at any step above their hourly salary on the immediately
preceding June 30, when they have served with the state as assistant district
attorneys for a continuous period of 12 months.
