Trustees grant classified staff pay boost for reclassification

Classified staff members whose jobs are reclassified will be eligible to receive an additional 2 percent pay increase on top of the previously allowed 4 percent as a result of action by the BGSU Board of Trustees at its March 3 meeting.

Before the change approved Friday, employees who underwent a job audit that showed that their position had changed significantly and were awarded a reclassification typically received a 4 percent increase in pay or the base pay of the new classification, whichever was greater. Under the new plan, those who are reclassified may receive an additional 2 percent in pay after a 60-day review period.

According to Rebecca Ferguson, assistant vice president for human resources, the classified staff has for several years asked the University to narrow the gap between compensation received after a position audit and compensation received after a promotion.

Note: This week’s Monitor has been abbreviated because of spring break. The full-length Monitor will return March 13.
