HR receives instructions for Annual Raise Process (ARP)
Following the enactment of the new state budget and having received further clarification and guidance from the Office of State Budget and Management (OSBM) and State Human Resources (OSHR) we have received instructions for the Annual Raise Process (ARP).
All permanent (benefits-eligible) EHRA faculty, EHRA non-faculty, and SHRA employees that were employed in a permanent position at UNCSA on June 30, 2022, are eligible for a 3.5% permanent increase with an effective date of July 1, 2022. The permanent increase will be reflected beginning with the Aug. 31, 2022, paycheck.
We appreciate your patience as we have been working through the details of the ARP. Questions may be directed to HRForms@uncarts.onmicrosoft.com
