Frequently Asked Questions Pay & Leave

Which method should be used when an employee is promoted to a higher grade on the same special rate schedule where special rates apply at the lower steps and locality rates apply at the higher steps (i.e., a hybrid range)?

Agencies should use the standard method, since the same pay schedules apply before and after the promotion. (NOTE: A pay schedule is considered to apply to an employee who meets the established coverage conditions even though a rate under that schedule (e.g., a special rate schedule) is not currently payable to the employee because of a higher pay entitlement under another pay schedule (e.g., a locality pay schedule).) See Promotion Example 7.
