Interim Assignments

Interim assignments are formal, temporary assignments.  For example, a director position becomes vacant, the assistant director may be appointed to interim director for a specified amount of time.

The amount of the interim pay increase should be determined based on the following factors:

  • The temporary pay increase should not exceed the amount of increase the employee would receive if regularly promoted into the position.
  • Length of appointment.
  • Grade difference between the employee's existing classification and the acting position's classification.
  • Extent to which the full scope of the higher classified job will be performed.
  • Survey data.
