Classification and compensation for University staff (non-faculty) employees is handled by two groups in the Office of Human Resources: Classification and Compensation (for SPA employees) and EPA Non-Faculty HR (for EPA non-faculty employees).
The Classification and Compensation group is responsible for maintaining fair and equitable classification and salary decisions for the University’s SPA workforce. The unit maintains the integrity of the State of North Carolina’s career banding program as well as the Department of Labor’s prescribed Fair Labor Standards Act regulations.
Classification and Compensation provides the following services: organizational design consultation; position design consultation; position classification; SPA wage hour designation; administration of the career banding dispute resolution process; consultation of departmental pay philosophies and strategies; compensation analysis; training classes through the HR Course Catalog; and salary adjustment approvals and monitoring.
