Pay Changes Effective June 17, 2007

General Increase:
All classified employees will receive a general increase of approximately 2.0% effective June 17, 2007 in accordance with Executive Directive 07-376. An effective dated row of June 17, 2007, will automatically insert into classified employees’ job data on Sunday, June 24, 2007.

Please add all job data rows that are effective dated prior to June 17, 2007, before Sunday, June 24, 2007. This includes promotions, demotions, transfers, terminations and any other transactions that require a job data row to be inserted to employee work history.

Do not enter job data rows dated greater than June 17, 2007, until after the general increase has loaded on Sunday, June 24, 2007. You may enter rows dated June 17, 2007, since the pay increase row will create effective sequence rows when needed.

The June 17, 2007, job data row will insert the action/reason code of PAY/COL and the new compensation rate for their current step. This includes those employees who are on steps above range. This update does not include classified employees at Regents Institutions. These agencies will process their own employees. In addition, employees who are on an unpaid leave of absence will not be updated. Agencies should update these employees on a case by case basis when/if they return to active status in the future.

Pay Grade Changes
The Legislature authorized pay grade changes for specified job classes in the classified service effective June 17, 2007. The affected job classes are listed in Executive Directive 07-376. The Divisions of Personnel Services and Information Systems and Communication will process these changes in SHARP on June 22, 2007, for the positions and employees.

A row will be added with the effective date of June 17, 2007, to position data with the action/reason of Position Change/Pay Grade Change. This row will move the positions up one pay grade. A corresponding row will insert into employees’ job data. An effective sequence one row will also be added to job data to insert the employee’s current step on the new pay grade with the action/reason of Pay Rate Change/Adjustment.

For these job classes, please add any position data rows dated prior to June 17, 2007, before June 22, 2007. Since position data does not allow effective sequencing, do not add any rows in position data that are dated June 17, 2007. Also, do not add any position data rows dated greater than June 17, 2007, until after the pay grade changes have loaded on June 22, 2007.

This update does not include Regents Institutions. These agencies will process their own employees. In addition, employees who are on an unpaid leave of absence will not be updated. Agencies should update these employees when/if they return to active status in the future.
