Salary anomaly reviews

Every five years, a Salary Anomaly Working Group reviews faculty salaries for inequities, including but not limited to gender-based inequities, and recommends how cases of inequity should be resolved. This is a joint working group of FAUW and the University.

Questions? Many of the questions in the 2015 FAQ also apply to this review, as the same methodology was used.

Race-based salary anomaly review

In the 2021 compensation negotiations, FAUW and the administration agreed to a process that would provide:

"… raw disaggregated data on race and Indigeneity to the Salary Anomaly Working Group, who will use it to update the results of the [2020] Salary Anomaly Review to identify any race-based anomalies. If race-based anomalies are identified, they will be resolved and compensation will be retroactive to May 1, 2021."

Due to delays in data collection, this process was halted, but has resumed in early 2023. FAUW's representatives on the re-constituted working group are Rashmee Singh, Kate Rybczynski, and Michael Wallace.

2015 salary anomaly review

The Salary Anomaly Working Group’s Analysis & Findings were released on August 3, 2016. The Working Group had been given two tasks:

  1. to investigate all cases where faculty salary inequities, including but not limited to gender-based inequities, may exist and recommend how such cases should be resolved using the Faculties' existing anomaly funds; and
  2. to review the processes by which salary anomalies are currently identified and resolved in each Faculty, and establish a standardized university-wide process for the detection and resolution of all faculty salary anomalies that may arise in future, wherever they may occur.
