Career Ladder

Career Ladder Justification Form / Career Ladder Completion Form

 A career ladder is the procedure by which a department can request promotional reclassification of a staff member whose duties and responsibilities have expanded to the point that their position meets the definition associated with a higher classification. The following applies:

  • For a revised classification to be considered promotional, the minimum entry rate associated with the classification must be at least $0.50/hr. greater that the classification currently assigned to the employee
  • An updated role description reflecting the revised duties and responsibilities assigned to the position in its new classification must be provided for compensation analysis with the career ladder request
  • Upon approval, the employee receiving reclassification will be granted an increase to their base rate of pay equal to either 9% or the amount necessary to match the available entry rate currently associated with the position, whichever is greater
