Miami Dolphins to reinstate salaries, return wages lost in lockout

Dolphins CEO Mike Dee said Monday that with the end of the lockout all employee compensation would return to normal levels effective immediately.

In addition, the team will reimburse employees for all pay that was withheld during the lockout, Dee said.

Dolphins employees, from support staff to coaches and front office, reportedly had salaries cut 10 to 20 percent effective May 15, with steeper cuts for higher paid staff members. Lagging ticket sales due to the lockout were cited as the reason for the cuts.

Other teams acted Monday to restore wages lost during the lockout, including the New York Jets, who delivered checks to employees' desks while the staff was assembled in an auditorium for an organizational meeting.

The Bills and Falcons were among other teams reportedly taking action to the return lost compensation. The trend would suggest that teams made out satisfactorily in the new collective bargaining agreement.
