DOE legal counsel advises board to resume Hay pay

by Krystal Paco

Guam - If you're a Department of Education employee, you may have noticed the Competitive Wage Act, better known as the Hay plan, still included in your most recent paycheck.

According to DOE superintendent Jon Fernandez, this is because following the Guam Education Board's vote to stop the hay implementation until they could get further information, legal counsel advised against it.

"The board directed us to suspend implementation. We had our legal team review it and we had to basically advise them that suspending implementation of the hay plan was not an option for the department of education like it would be for any autonomous agency," he said.

Instead of racking up liabilities, the board allowed for doe employees to continue to receive the hay.

After getting more information from the Department of Administration and following a work session and special board meeting to address the issue, GEB has agreed to continue the Hay pay.

Meanwhile, DOA will begin accepting all appeals for the Hay pay in June.
