Temporary Reassignment Compensation Policy 418.05

Johnson County Community College
Series: 400 Personnel
Section: Compensation and Benefits

From time to time, employees are temporarily assigned additional duties which are outside the scope of their regularly assigned position due to a position vacancy or long-term absence of another staff member. In certain circumstances, additional compensation may be awarded to employees for these additional duties, and the following guidelines will apply.

1. An employee is not eligible for additional compensation for assuming duties that are part of a position in a lower pay range classification.

2. An employee shall not be eligible to receive additional compensation for position vacancies or absences, which are twenty (20) working days or less in duration, nor for the assumption of additional duties that are not attributable to a vacant position, or an absence of greater than twenty (20) working days.

3. No more than two employees can be compensated for replacing a vacant position.

4. The compensation adjustment will be recommended by Human Resources and approved by the executive vice president of academic affairs. Determination of the adjustment will be based on the nature of the additional duties in relation to the employee's regular job assignment, the expected length of the temporary reassignment, the pay classification differential between the employee's regular position and that of the vacant position, and the salary placement guidelines which authorize pay placement within a position.

All pay adjustments resulting from the above guidelines must be submitted to and approved by the Board of Trustees. Where appropriate, pay adjustments will be calculated on an hourly pay basis, an annual pay basis, or on a per diem pay basis for contractual employees.
