DCFS Announces Increase in Performance Pay Adjustments

The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services will award four percent performance pay adjustments to eligible employees effective October 1st.

The increases are the result of capitalizing on efficiencies in this year's budget, maximizing incentive awards, and working collaboratively with other state agencies and partners during the past year. In that time, DCFS has also focused on continuous quality improvements, implemented numerous process efficiencies and advanced technology, and realized additional cost savings.

"Our team has worked hard over the past year and has seen positive results, such as receiving incentive awards regarding adoption, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Child Support Enforcement," said DCFS Secretary Suzy Sonnier. "I am pleased to announce this merit increase, knowing how important it is to retain the staff members who work tirelessly everyday on behalf of the children and families of Louisiana."

Eligible DCFS staff members are those who meet the criteria of the agency's Performance Evaluation System, an annual assessment by supervisors of each employee's performance.
