G-32-17.2.2 Non-represented/Regular Employees(1)

Non-represented/regular employees annually; based on available funding and the recommendation of the President, the Board may approve a general salary increase to exempt employees who have received a satisfactory evaluation. Non-represented/regular employees on a work improvement plan will receive the increase on the first day of the month following the month in which they successfully complete the work plan. The increase will not be retroactive.

Contingent on available funding and the initial placement of a non-represented/regular employee on the salary schedule at the time of employment, it is generally expected that after three years, employees in the same position with satisfactory evaluations will be at or above the first quartile of their salary range. After five years in the same position, employees with satisfactory evaluations are expected to be at or above the mid-point of their salary range.

Non-represented/regular employees who are at or above the mid-point of their salary range will be reviewed periodically to assure internal equity and compliance with Board Policy BEP 5 (replaced EL-6 12/09/15):

The President, based on the recommendation of the appropriate Vice President or Dean, shall have the authority to increase the salary of individual exempt employees above the Board approved general increase.

The President, with recommendation of the appropriate Vice President or Dean, shall also have the authority to grant a lump sum payment to exempt employees based on exceptional performance during the fiscal year.

Employees who have reached the maximum of their appropriate salary range may have their compensation adjusted by the following:

  • The President shall have the authority to grant a lump sum amount equal to the Board approved general increase to such employees for each year that they are above the maximum of their appropriate salary range.
  • The President may also grant paid leave and/or a combination of paid leave and a lump sum payment in an amount equal to the Board approved increase to such employees.
  • Annual increases to their base salary will resume when adjustments to salary schedule allow. Salary determinations for exempt employees are not subject to the College Concerns Procedure.
