Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) – Fairton Additional information:
Each inmate is eligible for pay for satisfactory work performed, based upon grade level for the particular job established by his work supervisor. Ordinarily, you may be awarded Performance Pay at the rate of $.12 to $.40 per hour of satisfactory work performed, depending on the designated grade level. There are four pay grades utilized in the Bureau of Prisons (Grade 1: $.40/hour; Grade 2: $.29/hour; Grade 3: $.17/hour; and Grade 4: $.12/hour). Maintenance Pay, which is $5.25 per month, is also utilized for certain work details. The higher pay grades, such as Grades 1 & 2 are limited. Any pay problems should be discussed with your work supervisor. Inmates who refuse to participate in the Financial Responsibility Program (FRP) or the required 40 Hour Drug Education Program will be held to Maintenance Pay level. You must have a high school diploma or GED equivalent to earn a grade higher than grade 4. Inmates employed by UNICOR earn pay at higher rates, from $.23 to $1.15 per hour, depending on skill level achieved and satisfactory work performance. Inmates who refuse to demonstrate financial responsibility while employed in UNICOR will be fired. Inmates employed by UNICOR are required to pay at least 50% of their pay each month to their financial obligations if above a Grade 5 level. Payments are deposited to your trust fund account the first of the month after it is earned. Factors considered in awarding pay are dependability, motivation, resourcefulness, and job performance. Pay bonuses are available for both UNICOR and non-UNICOR work assignments. Bonuses are awarded at the discretion of your work supervisor with concurrence from the department head.
