If the regrading application is successful, the staff request for the regrading will be authorised on Core by the Reward Team. If unsuccessful, the staff request will be placed on hold and written feedback will be provided to the Departmental Administrator. In the event of an unsuccessful application no further application will be accepted within a 12-month period from the date of the final grading outcome.
The date of effect of the regrading will be the 1st of the month in which the regrading application is received. Departments, at their discretion, may make a non-pensionable lump sum payment to compensate staff for working at a higher grade. This lump sum can equate to the value of the difference in salary for up to 12 months. Departments should act consistently in their consideration of these payments. On regrading to a higher grade, or transfer to a higher graded post, staff should normally receive the benefit of at least one additional increment above their previous salary.
Members of staff will need to have occupied the higher graded post for at least three months prior to the incremental date for the grade in order to receive an annual automatic increment.
This applies even where a member of staff receives a non-pensionable lump sum to compensate for working at the higher grade for up to 12 months prior to the regrading request. Departments should bear this in mind when determining the incremental point of a member of staff on regrading.
