4/28/06: Policy updated (per request of the Director of HR) to reflect correct language, that increases are effective at the beginning of the fiscal year. The academic year and fiscal year used to be the same. Once the fiscal year changed from May 1 to April 30, the increases became effective May 1st rather than at the beginning of the academic year. Other technical corrections were made to the policy, as detailed below.

Changes shown in blue:

An employee's starting salary is designated on the letter of appointment and is determined in accordance with the CUA Staff Compensation Program. Normally, a salary increase pool is determined each year based on budgetary considerations with specific employee merit increase granted based on job performance.

Should an increase be approved by the Board of Trustees it is usually effective at the beginning of the fiscal year, presently May 1 through April 30.

Non-exempt and hourly employees are paid twice a month, on the 10th and the 25th, or the last working day before those dates.

Checks are picked up at in the Payroll Office
