Policy on Temporary Pay Adjustments
A temporary assignment is defined as an employee fully and solely assuming the higher level duties and responsibilities of a position other than the normal position for a limited period of time. In effect, the employee is functioning in the temporary position instead of the normal position, not in addition to the normal position.
When an employee on temporary assignment performs a position in full, the employee should receive a temporary pay adjustment equal to the greater of: (a) an increase to the CL pay grade minimum (or 80% of the PA market reference); or (b) a 7% increase in salary.
Additional responsibilities are defined as the employee assuming some of the duties of a higher level position other than the normal position for a limited period of time. In effect, the employee continues to perform his or her normal position plus some of the duties of the higher level position.
When an employee is assigned additional responsibilities on a temporary basis, the employee may receive a pay supplement during this period. The amount of the pay supplement will be determined by the divisional Vice Chancellor considering the nature of the additional responsibilities, their duration, and the salaries of employees with comparable responsibilities.
Temporary pay adjustments under the above recommendations should not extend beyond one year.
Regardless of the length of time an employee serves in a temporary assignment, when the employee returns to his or her regular position, the employee's salary will return to his or her base salary for the regular position.
This policy applies to appointed staff employees who are not part of a collective bargaining agreement.
