Higher level duty pay compensates employees who are temporarily assigned duties from a higher classification.
Employees may be temporarily assigned higher level duties. Typically, a temporary assignment is six (6) months or less.
Additional compensation is typically 5% higher than the employee’s base wage. See the Collective Bargaining Agreements for more information.
If this is a permanent reassignment, it is best to start the position reallocation process. Click here for more information.
How do I request higher level duty pay?
Before assigning higher level duties to an employee, supervisors must provide Human Resources with the following information:
- Current job description
- Length of request
- The temporary duties to be assigned
- The percentage of time per day that these duties will be performed
This information can be emailed to Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Human Resources reviews the information and will determine whether the duties to be assigned qualify for higher level duty pay according to the Collective Bargaining Agreements.
If Human Resources approves higher level duty pay, a Higher Level Duty Pay Authorization form must be completed every pay period and submitted by the payroll approval date.
The request process for Classified Staff does not apply to Professional Staff.
