The College has authorized a one-time, non-base building 3% incentive award to Classified employees who received a performance rating of 2 (meeting expectations) or 3 (exceeding expectations) during the 2011-2012 performance management cycle. This incentive award is equal to 3% of the eligible employee’s annual base salary as of May 1, 2012 and will be paid in one lump sum payment on the November 30th pay date.

  1. I am a current employee who was in a regular (not temporary), classified position (full or part-time) on April 1, 2012. Will I receive the incentive award?

Yes, as long as you received a formal performance review with a rating of 2 (meeting expectations) or 3 (exceeding expectations) during the 2011-2012 performance management cycle. Those employees who were hired on or after the first working day in January 2012 were not included in the formal 2011-2012 performance planning and evaluation process and are therefore not eligible for the incentive award.

  1. I am a current employee who was hired on or after January 3, 2012. Will I receive the incentive award?

No. The incentive award is to reward classified staff who received a performance rating of 2 or 3 during the 2011-2012 performance cycle.

  1. What is a one-time, non-base building incentive award?

This is a one-time payment that will not change your current, ongoing monthly base salary. It will increase your pay for this one month only.

  1. How will the 3% incentive award be calculated?

It will be calculated based on the regular annual base salary you were earning on May 1, 2012. If, however, you voluntarily reduced your FTE during the 2011-2012 fiscal year, the incentive award will be based on the actual amount earned during that time period.

  1. I have two part-time positions. How will my 3% incentive award be calculated?

It will be calculated based on each of the base salary amounts you were earning on May 1, 2012.

 

  1. I’ve done some supplemental work, or I am currently working with an M.O.U which pays me differently than my base salary. How will my 3% incentive award be calculated?

Amounts paid for supplemental work, or under the MOU will not be considered for this incentive award.

If an MOU pays you more than your base salary, the incentive will be calculated based on the regular annual base salary you were earning on May 1, 2012. If an MOU pays you less than your base salary, the incentive will be calculated on salary established by the MOU.

  1. I have been promoted, changed my FTE status, or changed my position since May 1st. Will my new salary be considered in the calculation of the incentive award?

No. The incentive award will be 3% of your annual base salary on May 1, 2012.

  1. Will the dollar amount from my incentive award be taxed?

Yes. It will be taxed according to your current W4 elections.

  1. Will the dollar amount from my incentive award count toward my PERA earnings?

Yes. The College will withhold the appropriate amount from your award to submit to PERA; and, the College will make its appropriate contribution to PERA on your behalf.
