Chapter 11-Additional Policies.

11.1  Fitness test.

The City will pay $300 (less deductions required by law) to an employee who meets or exceeds the Criminal Justice Training Commission’s Basic Law Enforcement Academy Fitness Ability Test. The City will give the test once a year at the discretion of the Mayor. The Mayor, or designee, will administer the test. If an employee fails to meet the Fitness Standards on a testing date, the employee is ineligible to receive fitness pay for that period.  An employee is not entitled any type of compensation for participating in a fitness test. Neither the Union nor an employee may grieve a failed fitness test.

11.2  Bilingual Incentive Pay.

Bilingual Incentive Pay.  The City shall pay employees competent in foreign language(s) utilized in daily performance of work activities or in service to the City, one and a half percent (1.5%) of base rate pay. To receive bilingual incentive pay, an employee must demonstrate competency by obtaining certification status from the Department of Social and Health Services by passing a bilingual fluency test for DSHS employees and new recruits (or an equivalent test with the Mayor’s approval).
