Policy

[horizontal rule]

University departments may provide pay increases within the current wage level for student employees who by virtue of increased job knowledge, motivation, initiative, and abilities are regularly assigned more complex projects and tasks.

The following principles should be used as a guide in the implementation of this policy.

  1. Factors to consider in determining a student’s pay rate include experience in the position, mastery of job elements, and length of service.
  2. Increased duties and responsibilities still require a reclassification of the position to a higher student wage level.
  3. Each hiring unit is expected to develop its own evaluation guidelines so that supervisors can follow a fair process.
  4. The amount of the proposed pay increase should be justifiable and reasonable when compared to other student positions within the unit.
  5. The pay increase may not exceed the maximum pay rate of the student’s current wage level.
Note: A demotion resulting in a pay decrease is considered a new job assignment and requires a job posting.
