  • Staff Salary Structure Overview

    In an effort to help UF units determine individual compensation, UFHR partnered with Sibson Consulting to design a market-based salary structure that consists of 12 grades.

    Salary Market Data Sources

    The university has selected a number of reliable, well-established salary surveys to provide salary market data reflecting the markets in which we recruit and compete for Professional and Scientific talent.

    Additional University
    Employment /

    University employees may receive compensation for additional employment within the university, other Florida public universities (excluding community colleges) or State of Florida employers—beyond full-time equivalent (FTE) established for the employee’s regular or primary employing position.

    Electronic Paycheck

    Employees are paid through direct deposit and can view and print copies of their electronic paycheck at myUFL.

    Fringe Benefits Pool

    The Federal Office of Management and Budget allows universities to use an allocation method that applies fixed rates based on employee groups. This is known as a “pooled fringe rate.”

    Paycheck Codes

    A number of codes are reflected on university paychecks. The Earning Codes, Deduction Codes and Applicable Tax Codes documents can help you to better understand your paycheck.

    Special Pay Increase

    Special Pay Increases (SPIs) provide an increase to the employee’s salary in her or his current position and classification.

    Unemployment Compensation

    Unemployment compensation (UC) provides partial, temporary income to workers who lose their jobs through no fault of their own and are able and available for work.

    Wage and Hour Law

    Includes information on non-exempt and exempt status, time-worked regulations, no paid leave for OPS employees, overtime, record keeping, additional employment, and official university travel
