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.
