Wage and Salary Program

Date Updated: May 9th, 2012

The Scripps College Wage and Salary Program reflects the College commitment to fairness and equity in establishing a competitive compensation program. The Wage and Salary program establishes objective and uniform standards to evaluate positions in order to assure fair and equitable pay rates. Positions are classified into grades and recommended salary ranges are established reflecting the relative complexity of positions in relation to other positions.

Guidelines for distributing salary increases are developed each year by the Senior Staff of the College in order to determine the best distribution of available budget funds. Salary adjustments normally coincide with the beginning of the fiscal year on July 1st.

There is an established procedure for evaluating significant changes in job duties. The fact that you perform a greater quantity of work will not of itself result in a reclassification to a higher level position. The primary factors to be considered are the type and difficulty of duties that you perform and the amount of judgment and level of responsibility that are required in your position. The College Wage and Salary Program is administered by the Director of Human Resources. Your Office of Human Resources representative can explain your job title, classification, and salary range, and the procedure for evaluating job changes.
