Contained within this manual are position titles, code numbers, and rates of pay for each classification in the Classified Pay Plan as approved by the University of North Texas Health Science Center's administration and the Board of Regents. The Office of Human Resource Services is delegated the responsibility for the development, implementation, and maintenance of the Pay Plan.
It is the policy and objective of the Health Science Center to allocate funds for payment of wages and salaries in as fair and equitable a manner as possible. The primary factors utilized to determine a distribution is an evaluation of the relative value of the work performed and the job class to which a given set of job duties are assigned.
The basic compensation objectives of the Health Science Center's Pay Plan are to ensure equal pay for equal work and to provide rates of pay which:
1. are internally equitable;
2. are externally competitive;
3. are efficiently and fairly administered;
4. are in compliance with applicable State and Federal laws and regulations;
5. provide career incentives and motivate top performance;
6. and, are within the Health Science Center's ability to pay.
With respect to wage and salary administration, it is the goal of the Health Science Center to establish rates of pay and salary ranges which are justly based on job related factors such as complexity of work, education, training and experience, decision making, working conditions, supervision given and received, level of responsibility, and other related factors. Consideration is also given to prevailing rates being paid for similar kinds of work in the local labor market as determined by periodic salary surveys. In order to assure proper maintenance and smooth functioning of a sound compensation program, the Director of Human Resource Services/ EEO-AA will continually review and study all pertinent and available information. Based on evaluation of these factors, recommendations for the Pay Plan will be made subject to administrative review.
