Federal Medical Center (FMC) Carswell – Fort Worth Additional information:
Each inmate is eligible to receive pay for satisfactory work performed, based on the grade level for the particular job. You may be awarded performance pay, generally at the rate of $.12 to $.40 per hour of satisfactory work performed, depending on the designated grade level. Pay grade levels range from 1 to 4, with 1 being the highest. Inmates who are found guilty through the disciplinary process to have committed a 100 or 200 level series drug or alcohol related prohibited act, as well as inmates who have a legitimate financial obligation (i.e., court assessments, fines, restitution, child support, etc.) and refuse to participate in the Inmate Financial Responsibility Program will receive only maintenance pay of $5.25 per month. Any inmate who has worked full-time for 12 consecutive months on an institution work assignment is eligible to take a five-day paid vacation at the inmate=s prevailing hourly rate. Inmates receiving performance pay will be paid monthly. The pay period runs from the first day of the month through the last day of the month. Performance pay is posted to an inmate’s trust fund account by the 10th of the month following the close of the pay period. The pay grade of a work assignment is based on the degree of skill and supervision required for the position and the position=s impact on the institution in comparison with other inmate work assignments. For example, a Grade 1 position must be a skilled position which has institutionwide impact and requires minimal supervision. Grades 2 through 4 require lower skill levels, greater supervision, and have less impact on the institution. Some details may have several Grade 1 positions, while other details may not have any Grade 1 positions.
No time limit unless space availability is limited.
