An employee’s salary may change for a number of reasons:
- probationary increases
- step increases
- merit pay increases
- leaves (see the Benefits section of the UBC HR website for leave information for specific employee groups)
- lay off (see the Advisory Services section of the UBC HR website for information on lay offs)
For M&P staff, employees who are hired between the minimum and midpoint and are performing satisfactorily, progress to the midpoint of their salary range in no more than four years.
For Non-Union Technicians / Research Assistants (TRAs), Executive Administrative Staff and Farm Workers, employees who are hired between the minimum and midpoint will be compensated at the midpoint of their range by the end of their second year in the position, subject to supervisory approval.
Movement from Midpoint to Maximum
Performance-based merit increases are the means of movement from the midpoint to the maximum of their salary range for Non-Union Technicians, Executive Administrative Staff and Farm Workers and M&P Staff.
