Purpose is to ensure that individuals who assume or are assigned positions of lesser responsibility are paid equitably relative to other employees of the college.
- The rate of pay for an employee (who either voluntarily or by action of the college) is assigned to a job classification in a lower pay grade and range will be reduced to a point within that range. The amount of the pay rate reduction will be determined on a case-by-case basis by the director of human resources with concurrence of the administration and board of trustees.
If the total decrease in an employee’s pay rate results in a “red-circle” situation, the employee will be ineligible for future pay increases until the maximum of the pay range is adjusted to a point beyond the red-circle rate.
For terms of this policy the following definitions will apply:
- Base Pay Rate – The employee’s rate of pay exclusive of overtime or any other form of premium pay.
- Demotion – A change in job assignment from a job in a higher pay range to a job with a lower pay range.
