Work Assignment

Upon completion of the Institutional A&O Program, inmates will be assigned to an appropriate work assignment, provided they are medically capable of doing so.


Work-call for institution work assignments is ordinarily 7:30 a.m. at the USP and 7:40 a.m. at the Low and Medium. It is the inmate’s responsibility to leave the unit for work. Inmates who are late for work are subject to disciplinary action.

Job Assignments

All inmates are expected to maintain a regular job assignment. Most job assignments are controlled through a performance pay system which provides monetary payment for work.

Federal Prison Industries (UNICOR) has a separate pay scale.

Unit staff approve job changes and see that the changes are posted on the daily change sheet.

Performance Pay

It is the policy of FCC Beaumont to provide incentives and awards in the form of monetary compensation for inmates who make outstanding contributions to the accomplishmentof the institution’s goals. Work performance, as well as productive participation in correctional programs, may be recognized by performance pay.

UNICOR is a voluntary work assignment. Inmates who desire to work in UNICOR should submit an Inmate Request to Staff to the UNICOR Factory Manager. Upon receipt of the Inmate Request to Staff, the inmate’s namewill be placed on a waiting list. There is one major list toa pply for UNICOR employment. This list is divided into three categories. They are as follows:

List 1 – Previous UNICOR hires
List 2 – Inmate Financial Responsibility Program(court imposed fines of over $1,000)
List 3 – General

The grades range from grade 5 through grade 1 (premium). The hourly earnings begin at $.23 and top out at $1.15. The longevity premium consideration is $.30 extra per hour. Once employed in UNICOR, vacation days can be accredited.
