Multiple pay programs and incentives are in effect to attract and retain quality staff. Some pay programs apply to nearly all non-exempt employees, while others are limited to employees in certain hard-to-fill positions.
The following special pay programs are in place for specific hard-to-fill non-exempt (hourly) positions that require the employee to sign a work agreement for a defined time period.
Upon agreeing to work as a Platinum employee, an increased rate of pay is given for all hours worked in exchange for reduced levels of benefits.
Weekend Option Worker (WOW)
Upon agreeing to work as a WOW employee, a 50% differential will be applied to all hours worked from 3 pm on Friday through 7 am on Monday.
Extra Hours Incentive (EHI)
Upon agreeing to work additional hours beyond a regular commitment, a flat hourly rate will be applied to any EHI designated hours worked. An EHI agreement will be in effect for four, six or 12 weeks to address a short-term critical staffing shortage.
Differentials are either a percentage or flat-dollar amount applied to productive work hours for non-exempt (hourly) employees..
- A 10% evening shift differential is given for all hours worked between 3 pm-11 pm. Three consecutive hours must be worked during evening shift to qualify.
- A 12% night shift differential is given for all hours worked between 11 pm-7 am. Only one hour must be worked during night shift to qualify.
The amount of hourly weekend differential is determined by the base rate of the position (Minimum rate of the pay grade for the position/job code held by the hourly employee), rather than an employee’s actual pay rate.
- Base rate $0.00-$9.99 = $1.00 differential
- Base rate $10.00-$14.99 = $2.00 differential
- Base rate $15.00-$19.99 = $3.00 differential
- Base rate $20.00 – higher = $4.00 differential
Weekend differential is applied to all hours worked between 11 pm Friday through 10:59 pm Sunday.
Relief Charge RN Differential
A $1.25 differential will be given to an RN functioning as a Relief Charge Nurse. The RN is required to document this differential.
RN & LPN employees who have a primary position working in the Nurse Float Pool will receive a float shift differential.
Clinical Ladder Differential
The clinical ladder program has been established in specific departments to encourage and recognize clinical expertise. Upon achieving clinical ladder status, a non-exempt employee will receive a differential amount (usually $.50, $.75, $1.00, or $2.00) to all productive hours worked for the following year.
A flat $2.00 amount will be paid for all hours while an employee is on-call. If called-in to work, the employee continues to receive the $2.00 on-call pay.
When called-in while on-call, the employee will receive the on-call pay plus 1.5 times their regular pay rate. A minimum of two hours will be paid to the employee when reporting to the worksite while on-call.
