SUBJECT: Revisions to Classified Compensation Schedule
Each year the University Director of Human Resources reviews the University's compensation schedule for wage and hour employees and compares it with the state of Kansas wages, to determine whether adjustments should be made to the University's compensation schedule.
The Director of Human Resources has completed the review and recommends a 3% increase in the entry wages as shown on the attached sheet. The schedule proposed includes only classifications outside the bargaining unit represented by the United Steelworkers, whose wage rates are negotiated in accordance with the Public Employer-Employee Relations Act. The Classified Compensation schedule will become effective October 12, 2003, for fiscal year 2004.
There are 53 employees currently making less than the proposed new entry rates. Assuming no other salary increases are given, it will take approximately $25,000 to increase their annual salaries to the new rates.
President Farley recommends approval of the revisions to the 2003-2004 Classified Compensation Schedule to be effective October 12, 2003.
