Temporary pay can be provided to an employee who experiences a change in job duties and responsibilities for a specified period of time (i.e., assignment to a special project, reassignment during organizational changes, etc.). Temporary pay is not intended to cover brief recruitment periods, and should not last longer than six months. Extensions to the six month limit due to exceptional circumstances may be granted by the appropriate vice president.
When temporary pay is provided for assuming duties in a different role in a higher pay band, salary may be increased up to 15% above the employee’s current salary, not to exceed the pay band maximum.
When temporary pay is provided for assuming duties in the same or different role in the same pay band or being assigned a special project, salary may be increased up to 10% above the employee’s current salary, not to exceed the pay band maximum.
The appropriate vice president, in conjunction with Human Resources, must approve requests for temporary pay prior to the duties being assigned.
