Deferring automatic salary increments for support staff


Support staff who are eligible to receive annual automatic salary increments (auto increments) within the next 90 days will now appear on the Auto Increments screen under the heading for their collective agreement. If no employees show on the screen, then your school does not have any employees who are able to be deferred. Authorised users will be able to defer increments within EdPay, and these employees will no longer appear in the Attestation report from 4 April 2023. 

Deferrals will be shown in the Activity History in EdPay. Schools will need to regularly check the Auto Increments screen, as increments can occur at different times of the year.

Teachers, and non-teachers who are not eligible to receive annual auto increments, will still have to be reviewed on the Attestation report and confirmed or deferred manually to Education Payroll.

Step 1 In EdPay go to My School | Administration

Step 2 Click on the Auto Increments tab

Step 3 Non-teacher employees who are eligible for an annual increment in the next 90 days are under headings for their collective agreement.

EdPay displays their name, current grade and the date of their upcoming increment.

Step 4 To defer an increment for an employee, click the DEFER button, and a pop-up box will ask you to confirm that you want to defer the increment, click OK.

If an employee has already been deferred for the upcoming anniversary, their status will show as ‘Deferred’. Once an employee’s anniversary date has passed (see Increment Due column), they will no longer appear on the screen.
