Managers: Compensation and Salary Ranges
2013 Legislative Intent
July 1, 2013 (paid August 1)
- Performance Component: Range of 3-5% (budgeted at average of 4%)
- Base Increase of 3% for employees meeting performance standards
- Base Increase up to 5% for employees whose overall documented performance exceeds standards
- Base Increase of less than 3% may be considered if portions of an employee’s documented performance do not meet standards but the employee’s overall performance is acceptable
- If an employee’s overall documented performance does not meet standards, he/she is not eligible for any increase. (i.e. performance improvement plan in place, job may be in jeopardy)
- Market Component
- Base Increase up to 2% for employees whose salary is in the 1st quartile of their 2012-2013 salary range
- Base Increase up to 1% for employees whose salary is in the 2nd quartile of their 2012-2013 salary range
- Flexibility is allowed to avoid creating equity issues due to the market component
- If an employee’s overall documented performance does not meet standard, he/she is not eligible for any increase. (i.e. performance improvement plan in place, job may be in jeopardy)
- In the budget development, each of the increase components was independently calculated on the Base Salary (no compounding of Performance & Market)
- HRMS proposed and the State Personnel Board approved an increase to the salary ranges of 3% on July 1, 2013 and July 1, 2014.
- Additional Considerations
- Increases for regular non-classified employees are to be in a range of 3-5% (July 2013) based on market and documented performance. (budgeted at average of 4%)
- Probationary employees are not entitled to the market or performance increases but may be given all or a portion of the increases upon completion of the probationary period at the discretion of the agency.
- In all instances, an employee whose documented overall performance does not meet standards is not eligible for any salary increase.
- On January 1, 2014 the state will contribute an additional 1% to the retirement fund along with an additional 1% deduction from each employee’s salary toward the retirement fund. As of January 1, 2014 the contributions will be:
- 7.12% - State Contribution
- 4% - Employee Contribution paid by the State
- 3% - Employee Contribution by payroll deduction
- 1.14% - Retiree Health Contribution paid by the State
- The State is providing an additional $95/month Health Insurance Premium contribution (approximately 2.4% based on overall average salary).
