§5-5-5. Pay equity adjustment.

The Legislature hereby directs that a gender-based pay equity

salary adjustment be provided to public employees as determined by

the Secretary of the Department of Administration, based on

recommendations of the equal pay commission, within the limitations

provided by this section. This salary adjustment shall be provided

from the funding appropriated to the Department of Administration,

office of the secretary, for purposes of a "pay equity reserve" in

the fiscal year two thousand two and may not be construed to

require additional appropriations from the Legislature. If any

provision of this section conflicts with any rule, policy or

provision of this code, the provisions of this section control.

Because the provisions of this section are rehabilitative in

nature, the results of the pay equity salary adjustments are not

subject to the provisions of article two, chapter six-c of this

code. Further, it is the specific intent of the Legislature that

no private cause of action, either express or implied, is created

by or otherwise arises from the enactment, provisions or

implementation of this section.
