SPP 403–09: Pay Differentials
To define the compensation related to pay differentials
All regular classified employees and university staff
A pay differential is a compensation rate provided to an employee in a specified classification or position for duties regularly performed that provides an additional premium rate of pay established for the employee’s classification. When the employee is no longer assigned to this position, the additional pay differential is stopped.
An example is a police officer who assumes motorcycle duty, who thereby incurs a greater risk than a police officer who is not assigned motorcycle duty.
The Office of Human Resources will review the specific classification/position that requires a pay differential and recommend the additional compensation rate for that pay differential.
The president/provost of the university or designee must approve a pay differential.
