A brief description of how the institution ensures that its lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) receive sustainable compensation:
o IUPUI and IU maintain salary structures for positions that are tied to the appropriate local, state or national markets. IU does not have a compensation philosophy to lead the market but to be competitive in the market.
o While some jobs have single salary rates, the majority of employees are in positions where evaluations can lead to a higher classification thus allowing salary increases to increase beyond the initial hiring salary. The lowest paid employee on campus is $9.37 per hour, 29% above the minimum wage.
o IU has a tiered benefit cost for employees who earn less than $30,000 so that out of pocket cost for health insurance is reduced for lower wage earners.
o Only 10 appointed employees (.2%) earn less than$10.00 per hour (38% above the minimum wage).
