In March 2016 SMU launched a staff compensation study to ensure that the University’s job titles are aligned with the work that is performed by staff members. The study is being conducted by SMU’s Department of Human Resources and consultants from the firm AON Hewitt. The project is in the final stages, and an update will be provided in SMU Forum in January.
The study has included a review of job descriptions, organizational charts and other descriptive information in order to create a titling and leveling framework for staff positions across campus.
New federal overtime regulations and salary changes taking effect Thursday, Dec. 1, 2016 under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) are not related to or impacted by the SMU study.
Please contact the Department of Human Resources if you have questions.
