Rate of Pay upon Reclassification

In the event of a reclassification of a position to a classification with a higher minimum rate, the incumbent may receive the minimum rate or up to a five percent increase in base pay, whichever is greater. In no event can the incumbent receive less than the minimum or more than the maximum of the salary range of the new classification. An employee's salary must be adjusted to at least five percent above the minimum of the salary range upon completion of six months of service in the new classification. (ARSD 55:01:18:18)
