In range increases may occur when someone increases their job qualifications or responsibilities, but the update does not warrant a reclassification or promotion.
In-range increases are atypical but may be approved by Human Resources in limited circumstances. In-range salary increases result in a base building compensation change.
For a department to move forward with an in-range increase, the following must be true:
- Changes to job duties occur that don’t warrant a reclassification or promotion.
- There is a permanent addition of a limited number of responsibilities.
- The amount of the salary increase requested does not exceed the salary range for the position.
- The amount of the increase does not result in equity issues with other substantially similar positions.
