SHEPHERD COLLEGE SALARY POLICY
SECTION 1. GENERAL
1.1 SCOPE: These salary policies shall be in effect and shall govern the assignment of salaries for employees of Shepherd College.
SECTION 2. PROCEDURES FOR ESTABLISHING SALARY POOLS
2.1 Each year, or from time to time as deemed appropriate, the College President shall present to the Board a plan for the distribution of general salary increases to employees of the College. This plan shall address increases for all employees other than the President.
2.2 The general salary increase plan shall be developed after state-wide salary mandates have been accounted for. Statewide salary mandates shall include salary increases for faculty promoted in rank and required incremental funding of the classified employee 'entry rate', if applicable.
2.3 After the cost of state-wide salary mandates has been separately accounted for, the President's general salary increase plan shall be submitted to the Board for approval.
2.3.1 The plan shall reflect separately the total projected costs of aggregate salary increases for faculty, for non-classified employees, and for classified employees.
2.3.2 The plan shall reflect the aggregate percentage increase in salary to be paid to faculty, non-classified, and classified employees.
2.3.3 The percentage of aggregate increase in salary for each of the three groups of employees shall be comparable, but not necessarily equivalent; provided, that the President may present in the plan a proposal for non-comparable percentage increases among the three groups, for good cause shown.
2.4 The Board shall act, in response to the plan submitted, to establish the aggregate dollars to be allocated each year for general salary increases for each of the three groups of employees. The aggregate increase in dollars shall be distributed in accordance with Sections 3, 4 and 5 of this Policy.
SECTION 3. FACULTY SALARY POLICY
The total dollars for this increase in aggregate faculty salaries shall be distributed among faculty as follows:
3.1 The Distribution of Baccalaureate Faculty New Pay Monies Each Fiscal Year
3.2 The Distribution of CTC Faculty New Pay Monies Each Fiscal Year
Salaries of faculty in phased retirement shall be set as provided for in the applicable policy. The adjustment of faculty returning from leave of absence and exigent cases in the interest of retaining current faculty shall be at the discretion of the President.
SECTION 4. CLASSIFIED STAFF SALARY POLICY
4.1 Salaries of classified employees shall be set consistent with Article 9, Chapter 18B of the Code of West Virginia and Series 8, as amended by the Higher Education Policy Commission.
In computing the salary increases for all classified employees continuing in employment, the target salary under the salary schedule set forth in Section 3, Article 9, Chapter 18B of the Code of West Virginia, as amended, shall be identified. The gaps between the target and current salary shall be established. Salaries of all classified employees shall be increased in equal proportions toward funding of all gaps.
NON-CLASSIFIED SALARY POLICY
THE PRESIDENT'S SALARY
No provision herein shall be deemed to apply in any manner to the salary of the President of the College, whose remuneration shall be set, from time to time, at the will and pleasure of the Board and with the approval of the Policy Commission.
