| STARTING SALARIES AND COST OF LIVING
Specific salary ranges are set by the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association (FPAA) Classification and Pay Plan, and vary according to the duties and responsibilities applicable to each position. An applicant's previous training and experience may qualify him/her for consideration for an advanced position. Salaries and opportunities for other positions may be discussed in your interview.
Salaries are based on tenure, classification, and job responsibilities, within the guidelines of the FPAA Classification and Pay Plan, previously mentioned. Payroll is processed monthly. Your salary is deposited by electronic funds transfer, on the last working day of each month, into a bank or credit union account which you designate at the time of employment. Cost-of-living salary increases are governed by the State Legislature and usually occur once during each fiscal year. Merit or promotional increases are processed as designated by the State Attorney, Chief Assistant State Attorney of Administration, Executive Director or Senior Human Resource Administrator.
