Compensation Philosophy

The University's salary administration program is based on the recognition of three fundamental determinants of classification and salary:

a. the duties to be performed

b. the salaries paid for comparable positions in the outside job market

c. satisfactory performance

Subject to the legal and fiscal constraints placed upon it, it is the objective of the University to pay its employees’ salaries that are sufficiently competitive in the job market to attract and retain a high caliber of personnel and recognize the progression of employees as they assume the full scope and responsibility of their positions.

An important principle underlying the compensation philosophy is that there is one standard job evaluation system and salary structure for Administrative and Professional (APSA and Excluded) staff throughout the University that will be administered in a way which is fair and consistent and without regard to sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, religious beliefs or ethnic origin.
