Texas Woman's University Staff Handbook
Staff Employment Policies & Practices: Demotions

A demotion is the change of an employee from a position in one pay grade to a position assigned to a lower pay grade.

An employee may be offered a lower position in lieu of separation because of the employee's inability to perform in his or her current position, or because of a reduction in the work force due to unavailability of funds or program change.

In such cases, the employee's new rate of pay will be determined by consideration of the circumstances related to the demotion, the employee's employment record and job performance.

Additional information is located on the TWU HR Compensation web page.
