C0403 Salary Equity


​Western's goal is to pay salaries which are externally competitive and internally equitable to its employees. This external and internal equity will be maintained by a combination of salary programs which includes determining a competitive entry level salary when an employee is employed or promoted and salary adjustments as appropriate. Per the compensation system procedures, Western will review the salary schedules and the salaries of its employees to assure that the twin objectives of external competitiveness and internal equity are being accomplished. Where these objectives are not being satisfied, those individuals affected will be considered for equity adjustments, per the compensation systems.
