If it is determined by means of a formal HR review that (1) an employee has, for the foreseeable future, assumed additional on-going, higher level duties that are not included in the description for the position classification, and (2) that the new duties are not extensive enough to warrant a full position reclassification, then an "in-range adjustment" may be appropriate to compensate for the additional duties being performed.
The typical in-range adjustment ranges between 3% and 7% of salary. However, individual increases may vary case-by-case according to such factors as the nature and extent of additional duties assumed, internal pay equity considerations, and budget constraints. In-range adjustments greater than 10% are atypical and would not normally be considered advisable in such cases.
The guidelines and processes for in-range adjustments for the assumption of higher duties are similar to those for reclassifications.
