The term compensation refers to the range of wages and benefits that employees are provided in return for their work. Payments for all services provided by an employee are treated as an employee's salary and wages, which must be paid by the University in accordance with all Federal and State Regulations. This compensation section focuses on Pay & Taxes and Salaries & Wages, including self-service applications, information on employee salaries, Civil Service class specifications, and open range assignments and rates. However, these topics represent only one portion of the total compensation package. Compensation also includes such benefits as paid vacations, health and life insurance, and retirement plans. Visit the Leave and Benefits sections of this site for additional compensation information.
