E. Salary Grade Changes

(1) Promotions

   Employees who are promoted to a higher salary grade shall be placed at the minimum permanent salary rate of the new job classification or shall receive a 5% increase, whichever is greater. If the employee being promoted possesses outstanding qualifications in terms of education or related experience, the hiring authority may request additional compensation, not to exceed 20% total, to be approved by the Court Administrator or Probation Administrator. Employees who are promoted shall not be paid above the maximum rate of the new salary grade.

(2) Demotions

   Employees requesting voluntary transfers downward shall have their salaries reduced by 5% per salary grade demoted, not to exceed 20% unless the salary is more than the maximum rate of the new salary grade.

   Disciplinary demotions require at least a 5 percent reduction per salary grade or the employee's salary may be reduced to the minimum permanent rate at the supervisor's recommendation, with approval by the Court or Probation Administrator. (See Forms of Discipline.)
