The Compensation Program Salary Structure is comprised of five bands for non-exempt positions and three bands for exempt positions. The Human Resources Department determines whether a position is exempt (salaried) or non-exempt (hourly) based on the legal criteria set forth in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA is a law governing exemption classification and is necessary for compliance with overtime pay laws.
Band placement is determined by evaluation of the Position Evaluation Questionnaire(PEQ) in accordance with the ten compensable factors. The PEQ is a position evaluation tool designed to capture information about the essential functions, responsibilities, authority, independent judgment, and minimum requirements for the position. The PEQ evaluation process, which is completed by the Human Resources Department, provides a consistent procedure for evaluating positions across the university.
Placement within the band is determined by the market. Market data is obtained from a variety of reputable associations based on geographic relevance, job matches and the availability of reliable published data sources. Each position is assigned a market placement within the band identified as lower, middle or upper third of the band. The market placement provides a closer link between the position and the market within the broadband structure.
