Item 815 - Red Circle Rate/Plus Salary

(PPT Line G Item)

This item is used when an employee is authorized to receive a salary amount that is in addition to the regular "base" salary for a given class, or when the employee has been formally assigned a Red Circle salary rate. Red Circle and/or Plus Salary rates must be administered in accordance with their respective policy/procedure.  For additional information, refer to the Payroll Processing Guidelines for Red Circle Rates on the Systemwide Human Resources web site.

 

In addition, effective 7/31/2009 through the August 2010 pay period, Item 815 was used to capture the full time furlough reduction amount when Eligibility Substantiation (Item 957) contains one of the furlough codes.  This amount is negative, though a negative sign will not display.  The amount in Item 815 is subtracted from the employee's base salary (Item 320) to derive the employee's furloughed base salary.
