Group 1. Ladder rank faculty (non-HS Comp Plan) and LSOE series faculty

Funds equivalent to 1.5% of total budgeted salary of this group will be distributed through the program. A joint senate-administration committee met to review salary equity data and develop guidelines for implementation of the salary adjustment program.

Implementation guidelines:

  1. Deans will be provided with 2015-16 salary equity data generated by OIR in collaboration with the senate-administration salary equity committee, and their 1.5% fund pool.
  2. Deans will review these data in consultation with school Equity Advisor, Associate/Assistant Deans, and Department Chairs to identify issues in the four areas identified by UCOP: equity, compression, and inversion. Additional factors that can be considered include:
    • Decade of hire
    • Salary at hire
    • Retentions or salary adjustments
    • Rate of progress
    • Special awards
    • Service contributions including institution building activities
    • Sub-disciplinary market differences
  3. Schools will prepare recommendations for distribution of the 1.5% pool to individual faculty based on one or more of the areas/factors above.
  4. Provost office will review all recommendations for final approval

Group 2. Health Sciences Compensation Plan Faculty

1.5% will be added to the X and X’ component of the HSCP scales. There is no expectation of further discretionary awards for faculty who are members of the Health Sciences Compensation Plan.

Group 3. Non-Ladder rank, non-HS Comp Plan, non-represented, non-student, Academic Appointees

Individuals in this group are eligible for up to a 1.5% discretionary increase in salary if supported by the base salary fund source.

Implementation guidelines:
No salary equity data are available for this group. Deans will consult with Dept. Chairs, Assistant/Associate Deans and Equity advisors and submit a list of recommended increases. Provost office will review for final approval.
