Compensation and Classification

Compensation and Classification is a broad area of Human Resources covering salary administration, classification of positions, application of overtime rules (FLSA), market surveys and other topics connected to employee remuneration. 

The Compensation Unit provides consulting services to campus management on formal and informal job reviews, writing and revising job descriptions, assisting with departmental organizational changes, advising on how classification decisions may impact the department, and assisting departments with the interpretation of Classification and Compensation policies and procedures.

In addition to providing consulting, we also conduct salary and classification studies, respond to and participate in market salary surveys, research and gather data in preparation for collective bargaining, assist with the design and development of compensation and classification programs, and conduct individual salary equity studies.

Please send all requests to the Compensation & Classification General email: comp@ucmerced.edu.
