A voluntary transfer is employee-initiated movement to another position in the same or different role in the same pay band. The employee may seek the transfer through the recruitment and selection process or through a non-competitive process.
With a competitive voluntary transfer, employees may negotiate a salary offer from the minimum of the pay band up to 15% above the employee’s current salary, not to exceed the pay band maximum. The salary normally may not provide more than a 15% salary increase except when necessary to bring an employee’s salary to the minimum of the hiring range.
There may be circumstances where the negotiated salary for a competitive voluntary transfer is the same or less than the employee’s current salary. Pay factors, comparison of the positions in terms of complexity, results and accountability, and budgeted salary are some factors which may affect negotiated salary.
The non-competitive voluntary transfer allows the employee to negotiate a salary offer from the minimum of the pay band to 10% above the employee’s current salary, not to exceed the pay band maximum.
The hiring department has the flexibility to offer a salary increase up to the amount budgeted for the position. Human Resources will confirm the pay factors justification prior to the offer being made.
