FY 2019-20 Merit Pay Plan for PPSM Policy-Covered Staff Guidelines

In accordance with President Napolitano’s recent memo to the Chancellors, the Guidelines are available for implementing the FY 2019-2020 Merit Pay Plan applicable to Policy-Covered (Non-Represented) Staff.

The merit increase pool will be 3 percent of the payroll base of filled positions in eligible job categories. As communicated during the FY 2019-20 budget process, funding will be provided for staff paid on general funds to accommodate the increase in expenditures.

The 3 percent pool should not be misinterpreted as an across-the-board increase. It is the overall amount available to fund salary increases and therefore individual increases will vary, depending on performance and contribution. Merit increases for eligible staff will be retroactive to July 1, 2019 for those on a monthly pay schedule and June 30, 2019 for those paid on a biweekly schedule.

These guidelines do not apply to students, anyone covered by Academic Personnel Policies, or to exclusively represented employees, whose salaries are determined in accordance with applicable collective bargaining agreements and/or meeting-and-conferring under the Higher Education Employer-Employee Relations Act (HEERA).

Information regarding implementation procedures will be sent to HR administrators by Compensation Services. You may direct questions and comments to Campus Human Resources, Compensation Services at 310-794-0890 or UCLA Health Human Resources at 310-794-0500.
