UK Outlines Plan For Staff Pay Raises, Bonuses, New Benefits

WUKYNews_1.jpg

Some University of Kentucky employees would receive paid family leave, retirement contributions, salary increases and $1,000 bonuses under a proposal that requires Board of Trustees approval.

Media outlets report that UK President Eli Capilouto outlined the plan in a recent campus-wide email. Faculty would be eligible for some of the benefits while UK HealthCare employees’ pay is set through a separate process. The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the raises and benefits changes come a year after the university cut its retirement contributions and instituted furloughs and layoffs after COVID-related shutdowns led to drops in revenue.
