Are there different types of salary increases?

Yes, there are three (Refer to the HR Policy Manual for procedures):

  1. Merit increases may occur annually if performance warrants and budget permits.
  2. Promotional increases are granted when an employee moves to a position in a higher salary grade. The amount of a promotional increase is determined by the employee's skills and experience, review of other salaries, and departmental budgets.
  3. Equity adjustments may be requested if an individual salary is low in comparison to others doing the same or similar work having similar credentials within the university.
