2007-08 Salary Increase for Out-of-Unit Faculty, A&P and USPS Employees

GENERAL INFORMATION SUMMARY

The University has provided a one (1) percent salary increase for the fiscal year 2007-08. Additionally, the Legislature has provided funds for a $1,000 one-time lump sum bonus. The information provided below outlines the criteria for determining an employee’s eligibility to receive the salary increase and bonus, the effective date and the guidelines for implementation of the base salary adjustment and bonus.  These become effective on November 1, 2007.


ELIGIBILITY


Out-of-unit faculty, A&P and USPS employees who were in continuous pay status in a salary position on July 1, 2007, and who have an overall performance evaluation rating of “Meets Expectations” or above in effect on October 31, 2007 and are employed November 1, 2007, are eligible for the 1% base salary increase and the legislatively mandated bonus.

For those employees who do not have an evaluation on file, the overall performance evaluation rating shall be considered to be “Meets Expectations” for the purposes of this salary increase.

An employee who has received a separate notice of ineligibility or notice of non-reappointment is not eligible.

An employee who has an overall “Below Expectations” or “Unsatisfactory” performance appraisal in effect on October 31, 2007, will receive the 1% increase if he/she attains at least a “Meets Expectations” rating prior to July 1, 2008, but will not be eligible for the $1,000 lump sum bonus.  Such delayed increase will be effective on the date the performance appraisal is administered and the increase will not be retroactive.


IMPLEMENTATION


All eligible Out-of-Unit Faculty, A&P and USPS employees shall receive a pay adjustment of 1% calculated on each employee’s October 31, 2007, base salary (total salary minus stipend, if any) to be reflected in the Friday, November 9, 2007, pay check.

All eligible Out of Unit Faculty, A&P and USPS employees shall receive a $1,000 lump sum bonus effective November 1, 2007, to be paid on Friday, November 2, 2007, as a supplemental payroll.


OTHER CONDITIONS


Employees on leave of absence without pay on October 31, 2007, and who are otherwise eligible for the 1% increase and the legislatively mandated bonus will be provided the base salary increase and the bonus in the first paycheck received after returning to work. The base salary increase will not be retroactive.

All eligible out-of-unit Faculty (non-adjunct), A&P and USPS employees appointed to less than 1.00 FTE will receive a bonus payment prorated based on the FTE.
