8.b $490,057 salaried employees plus $29,664 hourly employees. Several factors contributed to the
increase from 2010–2011: One staff member was on unpaid leave for 7-1/2 months in 2010–11 then
that position was vacant another month. A new half-time position was created, effective in only the
last three months of 2010–11 but throughout 2011–12. Negotiated increases took effect in 2011–12,
including lump-sum payments. [Newark Law Library]

of presentations for 2011–2012 survey. Consequently, we were forced to estimate the number of
presentations for the 2011–2012 period. [Camden Law Library]
