Employee Handbook 2021-2022
Newly hired employees shall normally be hired at the minimum step of the classification into which they are hired and shall be advanced to the next higher step in their classification upon completion of the probationary period. Employees who are hired at a step higher than minimum shall also be on probation and shall also advance to the next higher step in their classification upon completion of the probationary period.
Annually after the date of completion of probation employees shall be advanced one step in their classification pay range until the maximum step in the classification has been reached. Employees who are promoted shall be advanced to the probationary rate of the higher classification and upon completion of three (3) months in the higher classification shall be advanced to the maximum rate for the classification.
Employees who transfer laterally to another position or classification in the same salary range shall receive salary increment increases as though no transfer had been made.
Demotion: If demotion is at the request of the employee, the rate of pay shall be determined by using the same step in the lower pay range that had been attained in the higher pay range prior to the demotion. If demotion is for cause, the rate of pay after demotion shall be a rate of pay in the lower classification pay range which is determined in the Department of Human Resources subject to the employee’s right to grieve pursuant to the grievance procedure provisions of Section 4 of this Handbook.
