Compensation practices are intended to be effective tools in addressing campus business needs.  The following guidelines are designed to assist Leaders when making pay decisions for benefit-eligible, non-teaching Positions and to be reasonable and flexible to meet the changing business needs of Wichita State University (“University”).  The following should be considered when making compensation decisions.

  • Leaders are responsible and accountable for compensation decisions made within the department.
  • Decisions by Leaders must be based on justifiable business reasons to ensure compliance with University policies, state, and federal laws.
  • In most circumstances and absent extenuating circumstances, Employees performing substantially equal Jobs under the same Leader should receive similar pay.
  • All compensation decisions require documentation and approval by the appropriate party as described within these guidelines.
