CDCR should train all employees, supervisors, and personnel staff who receive, approve, or issue the extra pay to ensure that they are familiar with the requirements of the Institutional Worker Supervision Pay (IWSP) procedure and Pay Differential 67.
In January 2017, Correctional Health Care reported that it would release its own IWSP policy and stated that it would reinforce the policy through training with the appropriate managers and supervisors and with Correctional Health Care human resource staff who approve, issue, or receive the IWSP pay.
In April 2017, CDCR reported that personnel staff at CIW were trained on March 1, 2017, about the requirements of the IWSP procedure and Pay Differential 67. In addition, it stated that all employees and supervisors who receive or approve IWSP pay will be trained by May 31, 2017. However, CDCR did not provide an update regarding whether Correctional Health Care has disseminated its own IWSP policy and whether its staff have been trained.
