HR Compensation conducts periodic reviews of UNM’s staff salary range structure to address observed market changes and best practices, as stipulated in the UNM Vision Statement for Compensating Staff Employees.
When the staff salary structure is adjusted, there is no impact on individual salaries for employees whose current pay rates are within the revised ranges. However, in the cases where staff employee salaries fall below the minimum of the adjusted range, salaries are adjusted up to the new minimum of the respective grades, in accordance with UAP 3500: Wage and Salary Administration.
UNM Staff Salary Structures, effective until December 31, 2020
UNM Staff Salary Structure, effective January 1, 2021
The University’s Staff Salary Structure will be revised for the upcoming calendar year in order to align more closely with market and to ensure compliance with the increase to the New Mexico Minimum Wage. As indicated above, employees falling below the adjusted range for their grade will receive salary increases up to the new minimum. Salary adjustments for affected staff will occur on December 19, 2020 for non-exempt employees (2R01 pay period) and January 1, 2021 for exempt employees (5R01 pay period).
Additionally, the Division of Human Resources is currently evaluating the UNM Clinical Salary Structures. Classifications in the Clinical Structures will move to an appropriate range in the regular Staff Salary Structure. Once all clinical classifications move, the Clinical Structures will be eliminated.
