When an employee is promoted to a job in a different pay grade/career band level, their maximum future base pay will be based on the new job’s assigned pay grade.
A promotion is the result of:

  • An opening at a higher job level due to a vacancy.
  • A business need to create a job at a higher level.
  • Movement to a higher career band level within a job family.

Note: In the first two instances, there is a probable need to backfill the position of the promoted employee.  

Promotional Increases

Promotional increases will be determined by the following:

  • Generally, pay for the new role will be in the minimum to 25th percentile of the new job’s pay range.
  • If current pay is below the minimum of the new pay grade, pay will be brought to the minimum of the new pay grade or increased up to 10%, whichever is greater.
  • Typically, employees already at or above minimum may receive an increase up to 10%, depending on budgetary considerations, equity, etc.
