Internal Equity Adjustments
When a job candidate is hired into a department, the prospective new employee's starting salary should typically not exceed the salary of any existing Regular or Term employee in the same job title and work unit who has comparable or greater qualifications. If it becomes necessary to offer a job candidate a higher rate of pay under these conditions, then the University's Internal Equity Policy applies see Section 3.1 UAPPM 3500.
Hiring officials should in any case contact their HR Consultant before making a salary offer to a prospective employee to determine whether or not the offer will generate an equity situation and, if so, to determine appropriate compliance with the Internal Equity policy.
Temporary and On-Call employees are not covered by this guideline.
For bargaining unit employees please refer to the appropriate union bargaining agreement.
