GMH discusses accidental pay raise snafu

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Questions have been raised over why it's taking so long for an accidental pay raise at the Guam Memorial Hospital in November to be reversed.  Last month KUAM News reported that the fiscal department accidentally received a raise that hadn't been approved and that their paychecks would be adjusted by the next pay period. 

However, Spokesperson Connor Murphy says that adjustment won't happen until the first pay period in January.  "Right now," Murphy explained, "we're working with the employees who are affected to have the equal amount deducted from their pay, but that won't be happening until after the holiday season. The original plan was to do it immediately, but after meeting with the employees it was decided to lessen the impact by waiting until after the holidays to do it."

Murphy added that taking into account the anticipated adjustment, the hospital will suffer no lost revenue.
