Pay Differentials

Pay Differential Library

A pay differential is special additional pay recognizing unusual competencies, circumstances, or working conditions applying to some or all incumbents in select classes. Pay Differentials are typically initiated through the collective bargaining process but may also be the result of a classification proposal. Creating and issuing a pay differential may be needed in order to recognize:

  • Recruitment and retention difficulties
  • Special professional or educational certification
  • Undesirable work location or shift assignment
  • Performance of atypical duties
  • Recognition of special but temporary responsibilities
  • Acquisition or possession of special licenses, skills, or training
  • Incentive-based pay
  • Other special considerations that impact a subgroup within a given class

There are over 400 Pay Differentials available to State employees who meet established standards. Be advised that this search feature will only display results of text included in the Pay Differential. If you are having trouble locating an item, try searching for the specific class title, class code, bargaining unit, and/or department. Please contact your HR office if you have any questions regarding Pay Differentials.
