PURPOSE

 

The revised salary scale is a compensation program which ensures internal equity.  It also allows for the City to determine starting salaries based on the applicant’s prior experience and/or education directly related to the position. A department may pay starting salaries up to the market reference salary range midpoint of a job, provided internal equity is observed and provided that there is sufficient budget allocated by Council for the position.

The program is also designed to reward staff members for developing skills and competencies in their current jobs in a more flexible way.
