Pay Policy for Classified Employees

Pay Policy for Classified Employees

Revision: June 2011, DSCS Approved: July 6, 2011

Excerpt from policy: 

Civil Service Rule 6.5g permits the hiring of classified employees above the minimum of the pay range, and up to the third quartile of the pay range under certain circumstances. Offers above the minimum of the pay range require approval by compensation and will only be considered in the following situations:

  • When it is difficult to attract and retain candidates
  • When the department is experiencing high turnover in a job
  • When there are hiring difficulties due to market influences
  • When a candidate possesses extraordinary qualifications/credentials

Employees who are re-employed on probation, but who could have otherwise been promoted, will retain eligibility for the promotional increase for up to one year. A determination will be made by HRM working with the department in each case as to the timing and appropriateness of the promotional increase.
