Governor signs bill controlling public sector staff evaluations

Posted: Updated:

Gov. Lou Leon Guerrero has signed Bill 23 into law. The law introduced as a bipartisan effort between Democrat Vice Speaker Telena Nelson and Assistant Minority Whip Senator James Moylan. The intent of the law to provide fairness in evaluating Government of Guam employees while still allowing preference points to be considered in the application mode of a potential government hire.

In her transmittal letter, the chief executive said once employees are within GovGuam, "They should be evaluated based on their performance and qualifications using the same lens that is used for their colleagues."

Preference points are usually granted to military members, those with disabilities and graduates of the Peace Officer Standards and Training Academy.

Now Public Law 35-3, the law says that preference points can be considered only if an applicant receives a minimum passing score or higher upon initial employment.
