Voluntary Demotions

Voluntary Demotion

A voluntary demotion is when an employee voluntarily moves to a different role in a lower pay band through the recruitment and selection process or through non-competitive means.

Salary is negotiable from the minimum of the lower pay band up to the employee’s current salary. Additionally, if the employee’s current salary exceeds the maximum of the lower pay band, the University has the option of freezing the employee’s salary for up to six months.  After six months, the employee’s salary must be reduced at least to the new pay band maximum.  The University must explain the timing and amount of the salary reduction before the employee accepts the demotion.

Human Resources will confirm the pay factors justification prior to the demotion becoming effective.
