At KU-LIFE you will receive electronic pay slips, which are sent to your e-Boks
. You can access your e-Boks via NemID
or through your online bank.
It is a requirement that the workplace provides a PC, so you can print pay slips. If you do not have this option, contact your immediate superior. Wage negotiations
The annual wage negotiation:
Wage negotiations take place once a year for the staff. Wage negotiations usually commence in early spring. There are three ways to enter into the annual wage negotiations:
- Through your superior: Your immediate superior sends a recommendation to the Head of Department, who obtains recommendations from Head of Sections and the Department Administrator.
- Through your organization: It is also possible to apply through your organization. Whether you are a member of a union or not, the union representative or an organization representative must negotiate for you.
- Colleagues: As a colleague, you are entitled to justify a recommended supplement to a colleague. Contact your principle superior (Head of Department, Head of Section, Department Administrator).
Since there are usually many recommendations, not all can be advanced by the Head of Department. This means that although your superior may have nominated you, there is no guarantee that the recommendation will make it all the way to the negotiating table. Accordingly, this does not have to imply broken promises, if your superior promised to recommend you during your staff development interview. In addition, any recommendation must be negotiated with the respective organization, and therefore requires that both parties agree.
Contact: Head of Department or Department Administrator.
During the year
It is also possible to negotiate salary during the year. This will typically be considered in new recruitment, reappointment or significant change within your current position.
Contact person for ongoing wage negotiations: Department Administrator
Who negotiates for the department?
At the Department of Plant Biology and Biotechnology, only the Head of Department and Department Administrator has the right to negotiate salary. You may under no circumstances promise employees, or potential employees for recruitment purposes, any form of salary without this having been coordinated with the Department Administrator or Head. It is clear that it can be tempting if you have a suitable candidate, and there is funding in the project, etc., but it is important that the pay system is transparent and that wages are negotiated equally for all employees. The cases where a salary has been promised that the department can not live up to usually end in frustration and disappointed parties.
