Raises in Limbo For KU Employees

KSAL StaffOctober 5, 2015

The University of Kansas won’t give out employee raises while there’s still a chance for last-minute state budget cuts.

Provost Jeff Vitter says the university budgeted midyear, merit-based salary increases for select employees that would comprise about 1 percent of the university’s salary budget.

Vitter wrote in a recent memo to university faculty and staff that extending the raises will depend on a few things, including avoiding any possible state budget cuts. He says the decision will be made later this semester.

Vitter says many employees had asked about the raises.

There’s been speculation about the possibility of additional budget cuts since the Department of Revenue reported last week that the state collected $31 million less in taxes than anticipated for September.
