Staff Report

The new classified compensation plan will begin to be implemented this fall, although it might not be that noticeable at first. New "role" titles will replace current positions and some new practices will take effect Sept. 25. The first performance-based salary raises will be made in December.

Human Resources is conducting information sessions throughout the summer to allow employees to hear more about the plan and ask questions. Employees are strongly encouraged to attend a meeting and will not be required to use leave time for it, according to Thomas E. Gausvik, chief human resource officer.

U.Va.'s Human Resources Web site at has links to a section on the plan, including the final report submitted to the governor and General Assembly, information about the commission that designed the new plan, the revised pay structure and employees' frequently asked questions.

Approximately 80 two-hour sessions are being held in a variety of locations, organized by department or school to make it convenient for employees to participate. Each session is intended to include 25 to 50 employees.

In addition to the meetings scheduled in schools and departments through Aug. 2, open sessions will be held in various University locations throughout August. Employees whose school or department is not specifically listed on the schedule are encouraged to attend an open session.

In addition, training sessions for managers will begin in June.

Since each session's seating is limited, Human Resources requests that schools and departments ask employees to sign up for a particular date and time. Check with your department or school for details. To attend a session in August, contact Gary Helmuth at 924-4250, or via e-mail,

See the list of meetings in May for Facilities Management, Environmental Health and Safety, Arts & Sciences, Architecture, and Engineering employees. Future sessions will be published in upcoming issues of Inside UVA.
