4.46.060 Appointments.

The appointing authority is authorized to appoint and employ auditors, field service representatives, administrative officers, custodians and accountants in addition to those enumerated in Section 82.390 of the Revised Statutes of Missouri; however, the salaries shall not exceed the amount as set forth in this ordinance.
(Ord. 62005 3, 1990.)

4.46.070 Starting salary.

A. The minimum rate of pay for a position shall be paid upon original appointment to the class, unless the appointing authority finds that it is impossible to recruit employees with adequate qualifications at the minimum rate.

B. If an advanced starting salary is necessary, the appointing authority may establish a recruitment rate for a single position or all positions in a class and authorized employment at a figure above the minimum but within the regular range of salary established for the class.
(Ord. 62005 4, 1990.)

4.46.080 Promotion, demotion, reallocation and transfer.

An employee who is transferred, promoted, demoted, or whose position is reallocated after the effective date of the ordinance codified in this chapter, shall have his or her rate of pay for the new position determined as follows:

A. Promotion: This shall be defined as a change of an employee from a position of one class to a position of class with a higher pay grade.

1. When an employee is promoted to a position in the General or Management Schedule which is only one grade higher, the employee's salary shall be set at a rate which is five percent (5%) higher than the rate received immediately prior to promotion. If the position to which the employee is promoted is two (2) or more grades higher than the original position, the employee's salary shall be set at a rate which is ten percent (10%) higher than the rate received immediately prior to position. The appointing authority may approve up to a fifteen percent (15%) salary adjustment upon promotion when such action is needed to attract experienced, qualified candidates for a position.

2. Such salary determination shall take into consideration the nature and magnitude of the accretion of duties and responsibilities resulting from the promotion. However, no employee shall be paid less than the minimum rate nor more than the maximum rate for the new class of position.

B. Demotion: This shall be defined as a change of an employee to a position of one class to a position of another class which has a lower pay grade.

1. If an employee accepts a voluntary demotion, his or her rate of pay shall be reduced to a rate within the range for the new position which is five percent (5%) lower than the rate received immediately prior to demotion. The appointing authority may approve up to a ten percent (10%) salary decrease upon demotion. However, no employee shall be paid less than the minimum nor more than the maximum rate for the new class of position.

C. Reallocation.

1. The salary of an employee which is in excess of the maximum of the range prescribed by this chapter for the class and grade to which his or her position has been allocated or may be reallocated shall not be reduced by reason of the new salary range and grade. The salary of such employee shall not be increased so long as he or she remains in the class of position, except as otherwise provided by this chapter.

2. If the employee's position is reallocated to a class in a lower pay grade and the rate of pay for the previous position is within the salary range of the new position, his or her salary shall remain unchanged.

3. The salary of an employee whose position is allocated to a class in a higher pay grade shall be determined in accordance with the provisions of Section 4.46.090 relating to salary advancement on promotion.

D. Transfer. The salary rate of an employee who transfers to a different position in the same class, or from a position in one class to a position in another class in the same pay grade, regardless of pay schedule, shall remain unchanged provided that no employee shall be paid less than the minimum nor more than the maximum rate for the new class of position.
(Ord. 62005 5, 1990.)

Editor's note:

Ordinance 62005 was passed July 15, 1990.

4.46.090 Salary adjustment.

Salary adjustments for all employees shall be based on considerations of merit in the performance of duties and success in fulfilling predetermined goals and objectives as herein provided:

A. Positions for which salary is established in the General Schedule.

1. Eligibility for within-range merit increases to be effective at the beginning of the first bi-weekly pay period which is paid in each new City fiscal year, shall be determined by the appointing authority. The appointing authority shall grant within-range salary adjustments in any whole dollar increment up to ten percent (10%) of the employee's bi-weekly base salary.

B. The appointing authority may establish additional guidelines for all within-range salary adjustments for classes in the General Schedule to ensure the effective utilization of salary ranges to reward meritorious service.

C. Positions for which salary is established in the Management Schedule:

1. Advancement in the salary range shall be made solely on the basis of demonstrated successful performance of the duties of the position. The increase shall be based on the degree to which the employee's actual job performance materially contributes to the effective management of and increases the total work product of, the organization in a clearly demonstrated manner, either from a quantitative or qualitative standpoint.

2. A decrease in the salary range for poor performance of the duties of the position or for job performance which does not warrant continued pay at an advanced rate in the salary range shall be made in accordance with standards established by the appointing authority.

D. Merit increases shall be fairly distributed in approximate proportion to the personal service budget accorded the various schedules of employees in the agency.

E. The appointing authority may evaluate the performance of an employee whose salary is established in this chapter for the purpose of a salary adjustment only at intervals as described above except in the case of:

1. Exceptional Performance of Duties. The appointing authority of an employee who demonstrates exceptional performance of duties or outstanding qualifications may advance the employee by not more than ten percent (10%) after twenty-six (26) weeks of employment at a rate in the salary range.

2. Substandard Performance of Duties. The appointing authority of an employee whose level of performance is significantly diminished and no longer warrants payment at the current rate within the range may be decreased to a lower rate in the salary range.

F. The pay of any employee may be decreased as a disciplinary action by an appointing authority to a lower rate or step within a salary. The decrease shall not be greater than fifteen percent (15%) of the employee's current salary rate. In no case shall the decrease be below the minimum of the pay range for the class. The appointing authority may determine that the pay decrease shall be effective for a specific number of bi-weekly pay periods; providing, however, that such decrease shall not be effective for more than twenty-six (26) weeks.

G. For the purpose of computing earnings and length of service for salary advancement, the time shall start with the Sunday preceding all appointments effective on Monday. Absence from service as a result of vacation, sick leave, jury/witness leave, suspensions, non-paid absence, leave of absence for service in the armed forces, and leaves of absence for study to improve performance of City job will not interrupt continuous service. Absence from service for any other cause except as set forth above will result in breaking continuity of service.
(Ord. 62005 6, 1990.)

4.46.100 Income sources.

Any salary paid to an employee shall represent the total remuneration for the employee, excepting reimbursements for official travel and other payments specifically authorized by ordinance. No employee shall receive remuneration from the City in addition to the salary authorized in this chapter for services rendered by the employee in the discharge of the employee's ordinary duties, of additional duties which may be imposed upon the employee, or of duties which employee may undertake or volunteer to perform.

Whenever an employee not on an approved paid leave works for a period less than the regularly established number of hours a day, days, a week or days bi-weekly, the amount paid shall be proportionate to the hours in the employee's normal work week and the bi-weekly rate for the employee's position. The payment of a separate salary for actual hours worked from two or more departments, divisions, or other units of the City for duties performed for each of such agencies is permissible if the total salary received from these agencies is not in excess of the maximum rate of pay for the class.
(Ord. 62005 7, 1990.)

4.46.110 Conversion.

A. All pay schedules in Ordinance 61282 shall continue in effect until the beginning of the bi-weekly pay period starting June 17, 1990, at which time the rates to be paid to employees in positions of any class for which a rate is established or changed in Sections 4.46.020 and 4.46.030 or 4.46.040 and 4.46.050 shall become effective and be adjusted as follows:

The salary of each employee whose pay range is established in Sections 4.46.020 and 4.46.040 shall be increased by two percent (2%) or to the minimum of the new range whichever is greater.

B. The pay schedules in Sections 4.46.020 and 4.46.040 shall continue in effect until the bi-weekly pay period starting December 15, 1990, at which time the rates to be paid to employees in positions of any class for which a rate is established or changed in Section 4.46.030 and 4.46.050 shall become effective and be adjusted as follows:

The salary of each employee whose pay range is established in Sections 4.46.030 and 4.46.050 shall be increased by a factor of two percent (2%) to the nearest whole dollar, as determined by the appointing authority.

C. This provision shall not apply to employees whose rate is deemed to be above the maximum of the new range as a result of demotion or reallocation. No employee shall be compensated at a rate above the maximum of the new salary range except as provided in subsection E of this section.

D. No employee shall be reduced in salary by reason of the adoption of the new pay schedules in this chapter.

E. The appointing authority may establish a special conversion procedure for a class of position in the event that the appointing authority determines that a serious inequity would be created by the application of the conversion procedures established in this section.
