Clinical Staff Salary Structures
In order to enhance salary administration and to align with best practices, the University will proceed with eliminating the Clinical Staff Salary Structures and moving all classifications into one Staff Salary Structure.
This change pertains to classifications currently assigned to alphanumeric grades beginning with AE, AN, BE, BN, CE or CN. Information capturing specific changes to individual employee records will be sent to HR Agents in mid-July.
This update will affect grade levels and, in one case, title; however, no changes will occur to salaries, FLSA exemption status, appointment percent, or any other aspect of an employee’s job record.
Changes will take effect July 31 for non-exempt staff and Aug. 1 for exempt staff. For more information regarding this effort, refer to the HR project webpage.
Minimum Wage Increase
Additionally, The University is preparing to respond to the next incremental increase in the New Mexico State Minimum Wage rate, increasing from $10.50 per hour to $11.50 per hour on Jan. 1, 2022.
To ensure compliance, the University will adjust the minimum rate in the Staff Salary Structure to $11.50 per hour. Additional changes will occur to align with industry-leading practices.
Preliminary information was provided to HR Agents in June, with more detailed information to be shared as the University gets closer to implementing the revised structure at the end of the calendar year.
