Merit raises have been suspended by 47 state agencies for civil service employees.

Merit raises have been targeted by lawmakers during budget talks. Agencies received approval for their plans from the Civil Service Commission this July and August. The plans last for one year and are designed to prevent layoffs. 

Some say the raises are considered almost automatic because 96-percent of civil service employees get them. New policies that would give agencies more flexibility to determine raise amounts are being considered for next year. The current system gives four percent raise or no raise at all.
