Promotion is the movement of an employee to a different position in a higher pay band. This movement is the result of the employee applying for the position through the recruitment and selection process.  Salary is negotiable from the minimum of the pay band up to 15% above current salary. (Salary may not be below the minimum of the new pay band.)

The hiring department has the flexibility to offer a salary increase up to the amount budgeted for the position as long as it falls within the 15% limit.  Human Resources will confirm the pay factors justification prior to the offer being made.

In the event a proposed increase exceeds the budgeted amount for the position, the proposed salary must be approved in advance by the appropriate vice president before an offer is made.  The Budget Office will confirm the availability of funding and Human Resources will confirm compliance with the pay guidelines and pay factors justification.
