Payment for Performing Work of a Vacant Position (Acting/Interim)

An acting/interim rate represents additional compensation for a staff member who temporarily assumes responsibility for, and performance of, another position at a significantly higher level/scope than current position in addition to his or her primary position responsibilities.

  • Typically an acting/interim assignment has a specific beginning and ending date and does not exceed a period of six months.
  • Supervisors/Managers cannot receive additional compensation for performing the work of an employee that reports to them.
  • The rate associated with an interim or acting position will depend on amount and complexity of the additional responsibilities assigned to the staff member.
  • The individual performing the duties may assume the title of “Acting” or “Interim” at the request of the supervisor.
