Professional Staff: Salary increases and promotions
The first step in requesting a salary increase for an employee is to determine which type of increase is appropriate. There are several types of increases for professional staff:
The annual university-wide merit increase: an annual increase controlled by the University of Washington which usually occurs in early fall and usually involves a small pool of funds averaging 2-3% / person. The process is administered by the UW upper administration, and information is distributed to supervisors each year in late spring or early summer. The increases usually occur around September 1st. During this process, performance reviews and updated job descriptions should be completed for all employees.
An in-grade salary increase: reasons to give this type of increase are described at (link ?).
A full position review (or promotion): if the employee is performing higher-level duties and needs to be given a new title and salary grade, see (link ?).
Details for other professional staff positions are found with the UW HR Policies and Procedures.
