Employee Relations > Understanding Your Job: Acting Capacity Pay
When an employee is appointed to a higher level position on a temporary basis, the employee is in acting capacity and shall be eligible for acting capacity pay beginning on the twenty-first (21st) consecutive calendar day of work in the acting capacity, retroactive to the first day that the employee served in the acting capacity.
The employee is eligible for a salary increase of not less than six percent (6%). Upon conclusion of the acting appointment, the employee's salary reverts to the employee's last regular salary rate in effect prior to the acting appointment, subject to adjustment for any intervening salary adjustments, other than acting capacity pay, that have occurred. An employee who is in acting appointment status must meet the minimum qualifications of the position to which he or she is appointed.
