The University’s Staff Salary Structure is designed to equip managers with a clear framework for paying employees competitively within the labor market.
HR Compensation conducts periodic reviews of the structure to ensure alignment with industry-leading practices and compliance with federal and state regulations.
The Staff Salary Structure will be revised for the upcoming calendar year in order to align more closely with market and to ensure compliance with increases to the New Mexico Minimum Wage.
Per University Policy 3500: Wage and Salary Administration, staff employees must be paid at a rate no less than the minimum of their grade. Therefore, employees falling below the adjusted range for their grade will receive salary increases up to the new minimum. Employees paid within the adjusted ranges will not receive salary increases as a result of this change.
Salary adjustments for affected staff will occur on Jan. 1 (2R02 and 5R01 pay periods). Notifications were distributed in early December to Level 3 organizations (Schools/Colleges/Divisions) to share with impacted employees and their supervisors.
To ensure job candidates view the most up-to-date salary ranges on job postings, departments are encouraged to re-post any long-standing job postings in UNM Jobs. When posting a job, it is important to create a new requisition, rather than copy an old one. If an old requisition is copied, it will not publish the most up-to-date data regarding salary ranges.
