Employees who are in grade 600, with a bargaining unit of 06,18,46,52,66 or 96 and who received a 3.5% salary increase (SAC row) effective 3/28/02 for Administration or 4/4/02 for Institution will have an additional row inserted automatically to decrease their FTA salary when the following occurs:

The employee's FTA salary prior to insertion of the 3.5% raise row (SAC) is equal to, or greater than, $75,000. OSC will insert a row effective 3/28/02 for Administration or 4/4/02 for Institution with an Action of Pay Rt Chg and a Reason of RWH (raise withheld) to decrease the FTA salary to the FTA salary immediately prior to the 3.5% raise.

The employee's FTA salary prior to the insertion of the 3.5% raise row (SAC) is less than $75,000 and the 3.5% raise brings the FTA salary above $75,000. OSC will insert a row effective dated 3/28/02 for Administration or 4/4/02 for Institution with the Action of Pay Rt Chg and a Reason of RWH (raise withheld) to lower the FTA salary to the cap amount of $75,000.

For graded employees whose general salary increase and/or performance advance will be withheld pursuant to Budget Bulletin D-1107, OSC will manually change the raise row (SAC) effective 3/28/02 for Administration and 4/4/02 for Institution to:

$75,000, or
the previous FTA salary, or
the hiring rate of the grade on the 4/1/02 salary schedule

which ever is greater.

All rows automatically or manually inserted will have an Increment code of 0402 to reflect the capping.
