Does anyone know when the JS salary bumps occur?
I graduated in May 2020, but did not start working at my firm until September 2020. I’ll start my clerkship in June 2021 — will I start at JS-12 or JS-13? If I start at JS-12, will I ever bump up to JS-13?

OP — realized I goofed on the timeline, I graduated in May 2019 and started in September 2019

I believe my JS bumped when I hit my 1 year mark with the federal courts, but I believe my new judge (second clerkship) had to send in a form to get the bump.

I worked for about 6 weeks at my old law firm before I started my clerkship in October 2019. Those 6 weeks were taken into account when I was bumped to JS 12. So, I was moved to JS 12 in August 2020, not October. If you put down your law firm experience on your HR paperwork, I believe you’ll be moved up in September.

^yes, but you’ll have to reach out to your HR to nudge them on it.

Would it benefit me to take a pay cut as a transactional clerk by about $20k to work as a clerk for a year then re-enter firm life? I’m transactional and enjoy that line of work.
