SECTION .0700 ‑ SALARY RANGE REVISION
25 NCAC 01D .0701 DEFINITION
(a) Salary range revision is any change in a salary range
approved by the State Human Resources Commission and resulting from changes in
the labor market.
(b) The primary purpose of a range revision is to provide
current and competitive salary rates for the use of managers with recruitment
responsibilities. Revisions resulting from upward changes in the labor market
serve another purpose in helping reduce the vulnerability of employees to
external job offers when their salaries are below the market average as
reflected by the mid-point of the salary range.
(c) Salary increases as a result of salary range revision
are not rewards for job performance or assumption of greater responsibility.
Increases provided by this policy are for maintenance of labor market
competitive pay levels for affected employees. For employees below the
midpoint, management is encouraged to increase salaries. Factors that
influence the amount of increase include current salary relationship to the
minimum and midpoint rates, salary equity among affected employees and
satisfactory job performance.
