Employee Compensation Plans


Classified and Temporary Pay Policy

A position represented by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), Local 503, Oregon Public Employees Union (OPEU) and the Graphic Communication International Union (GCIU).


Unclassified Pay Policy

Unclassified positions include professorial, research, and instructor positions as well as unclassified administrative appointments.


Undergrad Student Pay Policy

Oregon State University provides employment opportunities to students to assist them in the enhancement of their educational development and experience; to provide income opportunities as a part of a student’s total financial assistance program; and to create co-curricular experiences by which the student gains valuable work skills.


Graduate Student Employee Partnership Policy

Administrative units may continue to use graduate assistants, but they must do so by coupling their stipend funds to a tuition remission by partnering with an academic unit/program.

For graduate appointments supported by Statewide Public Service and other funds (non-001100 E&G, Designated Operations, Service Units, Auxiliaries, and Restricted/Grant Funds) the cost is paid directly on those funds.  There is no journal voucher necessary, nor is there a reimbursement for tuition remission.



The Fair Labor Standards Act establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments.



The Family Medical Leave Act entitles eligible employees of covered employers to take unpaid, job-protected leave for specified family and medical reasons with continuation of group health insurance coverage under the same terms and conditions as if the employee had not taken leave.
