Additional Information: Calculating Per Diem Pay
To determine the appropriate salary rate for an employee placed in a Per Diem classification, campuses are required to perform the following steps:

  1. Identify the appropriate Unit 2 classification (e.g., Pharmacist, Licensed Vocational Nurse II);
  2. Refer to the 12-month salary range of the classification identified in #1 above to determine the appropriate equivalent base rate of pay (if the incumbent were full-time). This rate must be within the classification's salary range;
  3. Convert the monthly rate to the hourly/intermittent rate (Base Rate / 173.33 = Hourly Rate);
  4. Once the hourly rate is determined, add a 29% differential to the hourly rate (Hourly Rate X 1.29 = Per Diem Hourly Rate); and,
  5. Appoint incumbent to Per Diem classification (code 7930) with PIMS Item 405 = "INT".
  6. If the employee receives an adjustment in their base (hourly/intermittent) rate, recalculate the Per Diem Hourly Rate by adding a 29% differential to the new base (hourly/intermittent) rate.
Refer to Article 2 of the collective bargaining agreement and Appendix B.
