SRC Starts County Job Evaluation

THE Salaries and Remuneration Commission has started a two-week job evaluation in Machakos county.

The SRC will use the exercise, which began on Tuesday, to draw an equitable salary structure for the counties and the national government.

Celestine Kiuluku, one of the commissioners said the salary structure will help address the high wage bill in many counties.

She said there are a lot of disparities on salaries paid to employees with similar qualifications.

“We want to address some of these disparities, where you find an engineer working in Machakos, for example, is paid more than his colleague with the same qualifications,” Kiuluku said.
