To the greatest extent possible, all personnel actions should be implemented on the first day of a pay period. This includes promotions (position life-cycle), FTE changes, pay increases, etc. This minimizes the workflow burden placed on processing units and is an expectation of the Provost's Office and Workforce Systems. Units wishing to request a retroactive salary adjustment must submit a completed Retroactive Salary Adjustment Justification Form to the division for approval. The Provost must also sign this document. Retroactive promotions and FTE changes will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
When preparing paperwork/transactions to implement personnel actions, please keep in mind that the effective date should be set far enough in advance to allow time to obtain department, divison, Human Resources and Systems Control approvals prior to the proposed effective date.
