ALERT: Salary and Wage Increase Restrictions: From the present through June 30, 2013 there are legislatively mandated restrictions on salary increases for all UW employees except contract classified and classified non-union staff. Learn more about salary increase restrictions.
Under exceptional circumstances overtime exempt professional staff may qualify for excess compensation for work that is not part of a position's regular duties, and that is typically performed outside of the employee’s regular department. If a professional staff employee temporarily takes on additional duties for his/her regular department, a temporary pay increase may be appropriate. Overtime eligible professional staff do not qualify for "excess compensation".
Examples of work that might qualify for excess compensation when they are not part of an employee’s regular appointment are:
Excess compensation may not exceed 25% of an employee's regular annual salary (see the excess compensation section of the Professional Staff Program). Unlike excess compensation for faculty, professional staff can receive excess compensation for direct service on a research grant or from research grant funds subject to specific grant provisions.
Teaching in the regular University curriculum should normally be included in an employee's regular work schedule. The appropriate dean, vice president, or the provost may approve excess compensation for teaching when:
Teaching in for-credit courses requires Academic Human Resources Office approval.
Excess compensation requires the approval of the department that will pay the excess compensation, the employee's home department and the dean/vice president for the employee's home department. Approval documentation must be included in OPUS as described below.
