Additional details on the upcoming 2017-2019 pay plan

Since the announcement of a pay plan in January, Associate Dean for Human Resources Carol Hillmer announced additional details, some of which impact an employee’s eligibility to receive increases. If you have questions, please contact the CALS HR Manager working with your unit.

  • The 4.04% state pay plan increases will be phased-in in two phases:

Phase 1 – 2%

Phase 2 – 2%

H basis employees June 24, 2018 H basis employees January 6, 2019
A basis employees July 1, 2018 A basis employees January 1, 2019
C basis employees August 20, 2018 C basis employees January 3, 2019
  • The following employees/employee categories are NOT eligible:
    Temporary employees (CL)
    Student Assistants (SA)
    Student Hourly (SH)
    Other (OT)
    Post Degree Training (ET) except Research Associate (X01NN) and Research Intern (X50NN) with an expected job end date after July 1, 2018
    Represented Craftsworkers/Trades
    Rehired annuitants
  • Employees in eligible categories hired AFTER January 8, 2018, are NOT eligible. Appointment letters now include the following statement: “Because you started after January 8, 2018, you are not eligible to receive the 4% state pay plan that was approved for distribution in 2018-2019. Your starting rate was set with this understanding.”
  • Supervisors must be current with annual performance reviews (within the last 12 months) for all employees they supervise. Reviews must be on file in CALS Human Resources no later than March 16, 2018. Alerts will soon be sent to supervisors (copies to chairs/directors/administrators).
  • Employees on probation, hired prior to January 8, 2018, are eligible for the pay plan increases, as long as they meet all other eligibility criteria.
