Compensation and Benefits

Pay Periods

Each month is divided into two pay periods at Califon UMC. The first pay period covers the 1st through the 15th of the month, and the second covers the 16th through the last day of the month. Paydays for staff will normally be on the last day of each pay period (the 15th and the last days of each month). When a payday falls on a non-work day, staff will receive their pay on the last workday preceding the non-work day.  

Salary levels

SPRC establishes salaries as described in “Beginning the Employment Relationship” above. Staff salaries for are reviewed annually and may be adjusted by SPRC based on merit, job changes and/or available funds. 

Travel and Mileage Expenses 

Clergy staff have accountable reimbursement funds to cover travel and mileage expenses (as well as other work-related expenses), and those funds have IRS guidelines for calculating amounts and keeping records. Lay staff are encouraged to log travel and mileage expenses and deduct these expenses on their personal state and federal income taxes.

Other Reimbursable Expenses

Occasionally, items that need to be purchased to fulfill staff duties are more easily and correctly purchased directly by staff, and reimbursed by CUMC. Prior approval is required.
