October payroll to include remaining retro pay and restoration of frozen step for full-time faculty
The remaining retro pay owed to faculty by the District will appear on the regular October paycheck, not on an off-cycle as previously stated by the District. The extra retro amount stems from two errors in the District’s retro payments on the September paycheck:
- The difference between 9.6% and 9.4% of all 2015/16 earnings
- The difference between 10.7% and 9.4% of August and September earnings.
Full-time faculty eligible for an additional salary step from the 2009/10 “frozen step” restoration, will be paid at the higher step effective with the October paycheck and with back pay for July – September. Eligible faculty include those who would have advanced a salary step in 2009/10 but for the step freeze and who were not at the top of the salary schedule on July 1, 2016. Part-time faculty who lost semester credit in 2009/10 because of the freeze will also be restored, but not on the October paycheck. The District hopes to complete this work and restore eligible part time faculty in November. Finally, payroll has identified 288 full-timers who moved to new Salary Step 17 who will receive retro pay for July and August for the step increase on the October paycheck.
