  • Emphasis on internal equity within a responsibility center
  • Determining factors in salary decisions include the following:
    • The employee’s job-related qualifications and performance
    • Pay of other employees performing comparable work in the responsibility center
    • The responsibility center’s fiscal status
    • External market considerations for comparable work in the relevant labor market (local, state, regional, or national) and type of employer (general industry or higher education)
