Minimum Wage Increase:
The Bureau of Labor and Industry has announced that Oregon’s minimum wage will increase on January 1st, 2014. The rate will increase from the current $8.95 per hour to $9.10 per hour; an increase of $0.15.
The AABC Payroll team has verified the new systems, Multiple Assignment and EmpCenter, will be revised by a central process to reflect the new increased rate of pay for those who are below the new minimum of $9.10 per hour. Business centers and units will only need to make changes to those they want above the new minimum rate or increased in conjunction with the new minimum rate.
In the past, the AABC payroll team has offered a spreadsheet process to report desired increases to us for processing. This year, given that Multiple Assignment is being kept as the employee record for students and TS901’s, and that it allows supervisors to make rate changes right within it, we will leave this processing to the supervisors. We do not have the ability to lock Multiple Assignment down from supervisor edits and so as not to be duplicating efforts or making a dual process, supervisors will edit their own assignments directly in Multiple Assignment. Multiple Assignment does offers the ability to future date records, therefore you can edit the rates as early as you would like and simply make the effective date of the increase January 1, 2014.
While supervisors now have access to update rates, we do suggest you work with the appropriate budget authority to verify the desired rate increases are allowable and fit in your department’s budget and expectations of consistency of rates between students and TS901’s, before making any changes.
To change the rates of pay for your TS901 or student staff, you will edit the assignment in Multiple Assignment. For directions on editing assignments you can find the Multiple Assignment User Guide under the Supervisor Policy Profile/Role Training section of the MyTime training page or at this link http://mytime.oregonstate.edu/empcenter-training/supervisor-training. Instructions for editing an assignment start on page 10.
