Annual Discretionary Increase Moratorium

Monday, May 1, 2017

With the annual moratorium* on discretionary pay increases for all employee types, including student workers, fast approaching, here are a few important things to remember:

  • May 8, 2017 is the last effective date for fiscal year 2016-2017 increases. If you have employees slated to receive increases effective May 8, 2017, submit your Manager Self Service (MSS) Job Change requests to Workforce Systems by May 10, 2017
  • Discretionary pay increases may not be submitted with an effective date of May 22, 2017 through the end of the fiscal year – even if submitted now.
  • Discretionary increases submitted after May 10, 2017 will be effective July 1, 2017 or after.

Questions about the moratorium or processing MSS Job Change requests may be directed to Workforce Systems at (520) 621-3664.

*The moratorium includes ALL pay change reasons with the exception of promotions or transfers for positions that have undergone competitive recruitment.
