A brief description of how the institution ensures that its lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) receive sustainable compensation:

Based on our campus policy (PS20) and LSU System permanent memoranda (PM69), LSU is required to maintain a salary structure based upon market comparison of key benchmark positions with salary parameters (range) by job group/title. Too, clerical and trades compensation is defined by the Louisiana Department of State Civil Service and is also based on market competitiveness. All employees are paid at or above the minimum of their specified job group/title.

The most recent year total compensation for the institution’s lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) was evaluated to ensure that it was sustainable:

The website URL where information about the institution’s compensation policies and practices is available:

Based on our last Department of Labor record, the total number of employees is 6051, which are all at or above the minimum salary for the job group/title. This does not include the number of contractors as they are not considered employees and therefore are not subject to the same policies and compensation practices. Purchasing handles all contractual agreements. The last benchmark assessment was conducted in 2007, however each hire’s salary is reviewed individually to determine appropriateness with the established range and market competitiveness.
