Title & Total Compensation Project Effective November 7th

The University of Wisconsin System has embarked on a complete redesign of its current classification and compensation structure. The goal of the Title & Total Compensation Project (T&TC) is to modernize the existing title and compensation programs which will, in turn, attract and retain the best talent for the organization.

After a lengthy delay due to COVID-19, the new title structure was implemented on November 7, 2021. The full title and standard job description library is currently posted on the UW System Title & Total Compensation Project website.

Appeal Process

As part of the Title & Total Compensation Project (T&TC), all in-scope positions have been mapped to a title within the new structure. If an employee disagrees with their mapped title, they are able to formally appeal the decision. To initiate a title appeal, an employee must submit a Title Appeal Request with supporting documentation between November 7, 2021 and December 31, 2021. The institution will settle appeals between January 1, 2022 and June 30, 2022.

Only title of record can be formally reviewed and appealed. Pay range, compensation, FLSA exemption status, business title, and language in the Standard Job Descriptions cannot be appealed.
