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

Salary advancement for non-represented/regular employees is based on available funding and the recommendation of the President. The Board may approve a general salary increase for 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. 

The President, per the recommendation of the appropriate President’s Advisory Team member and/or the Chief Human Resources Officer, shall have the authority to increase the salary of individual exempt employees above the Board approved general increase based on merit or performance factors, provided the increase is in compliance with Oregon Pay Equity requirements.

Employees who have reached the maximum of their appropriate salary range may have their compensation adjusted by the following, provided any salary changes are in compliance with Oregon Pay Equity requirements:

  • 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.
