Salary is based on the pay grade assigned to the Civil Service classification. Each position is classified by the Louisiana Civil Service Commission. These pay grades are assigned to each classified position and include a minimum and maximum salary.

4.11.1 Pay Periods

Employees are paid bi–weekly over 26 pay periods a year. Checks are distributed by the Controller’s Office on alternating Fridays. New employees may not receive the first check until about three weeks due to a one–week lag. At that time, the new employee will receive a check for the first pay period worked.

4.11.4 Merit Increases

When a new employee has been continuously employed, without a break in service of one or more working days for a period of six months, he or she becomes eligible for and may be granted a merit increase provided that the appointing authority has determined his or her performance merits such an award.

At the end of each subsequent 12–month period of such continuous employment, the employee may be granted an additional merit increase if the appointing authority has determined that his or her performance merits such an award. This date of eligibility shall be known as an anniversary date and shall not change through such continuous employment within the classified service.

These merit increases are not automatic. They must be earned; the supervisor must recommend them; and the University must have funds available to grant them.

All classified employees of the University are eligible to receive any cost–of–living increase granted in accordance with the plan recommended by the Department of Civil Service and approved by the Legislature and Governor.
