UA Increases Employee Minimum Wage

The University of Alabama will increase its staff minimum wage to $14 per hour effective April 3, and again to $15 an hour in January 2023. The change applies to regular benefits eligible non-exempt employees and will impact more than 350 individuals.

“This salary adjustment for our lowest paid staff employees is the first step in the HReimagined compensation improvement goal and reflects the University’s commitment to competitive wages for all of those who contribute to UA’s success,” said Susan Norton, senior associate vice president and chief human resources officer.

The Human Resources Office will send individual letters to each affected employee informing them of their increase. HR is also developing a plan to address compression adjustments for other non-exempt positions early next year. Details will be available later in the year.
