Exempt Compensation

The compensation system for Exempt positions directly relates the salary to the work responsibilities, management skill requirements and accountability.

How are Exempt position salaries determined?

All positions under the State HR Director are “broad banded” or grouped into broad salary range categories known as Exempt Management Bands. Management bands are a series of management levels composed of a salary minimum and maximum dollar level. Placement in a band reflects the:

  • Nature of management
  • Decision-making environment and policy impact
  • Scope of management accountability
  • Control assigned to the position

Within the salary limits of the band the specific salary range for the employee and/or position is set.

Are there other types of compensation?

All state employees receive a comprehensive total compensation package.
