Guam - It's been over a month since recommendations were initially supposed to be proffered for appeals filed by Government of Guam employees over the Competitive Wage Act. Late June marked the deadline for employees to file an appeal with a job review committee set to offer recommendations by August 1st. According to DOA personnel services administrator Shane Ngata, due to the large demands on his office, the Human Resources Division is still sorting and assessing the requests. Ngata says there were approximately 183 requests for appeals. He adds while there is no requirement by law to submit the recommendations by a certain date, he says this process is part of a proactive approach to making sure that the employees have due process when concerned with their pay grades. No new timeline was provided only that they'll be addressed "once the concerns are sorted properly."
