Special Pay Increase

Special pay increases should not compound salary compression within the unit.  Multiple factors will be considered when offering guidance for an appropriate increase amount. 

Special Pay Increase Request Form (MS Forms, Gatorlink login required)

Types of SPI for TEAMS and USPS employees:

  • Additional Pay = 3-7% increase is standard
  • Counter Offer/Retention = the outside offer letter must be submitted for review
  • Market/Internal Equity = analytics must be requested from IFAS-HRDI prior to request submission
  • Temporary Increase = no longer than 12 months and then removed.
  • SPI Removal = to remove a temporary SPI; if removing a longer-term SPI, please review with IFAS-HRDI prior to submission
  • Sustained Superior Performance-Recurring = strong justification required; salary increase will be permanent and should not be removed
  • Superior Performance-Nonrecurring = one-time payment; non-exempt positions cannot exceed $3000 total and exempt positions may not exceed 15% of base salary.  Strong justification is required.

New Hire Salary Guideline

In a greater attempt to combat salary compression, IFAS-HRDI has set the following guideline for new job postings for staff while keeping the door open for negotiation on both sides of the table.

  • Best Practice: salary ranges may state the lower reference point to the 25th percentile of the pay grade and/or place “Commensurate with education and experience

Examples:

“$39,700 - $46,000 or commensurate with education and experience

“$46,000 or commensurate with education and experience”

Minimum Wage:

$10.00 hourly OPS employees
GAU Collective Bargaining Agreement Graduate Assistants
$47,476 annually per 1.0 FTE Postdoctoral Associates
$15.00 hourly non-exempt TEAMS
$35,568 annually exempt TEAMS/USPS
