Compensation by Employee Group

Compensation by Employee Group

At PSU our Compensation practices are governed by Collective Bargaining Agreements (SEIU, AAUP, and AFT), PSU policy/practices, and State and Federal wage and hour laws. It is the University’s goal that employees understand their job duties and to compensate fairly within the University budget and any constraints of these regulatory and administrative requirements. The University’s total compensation package is included in market surveys of our competitive position, reflecting the above market position of offerings in non-direct compensation areas of medical, dental and retirement benefits.
