Pay transparency

In the interest of full transparency, UC employees and prospective employees are entitled to information about the salary range for UC positions. 

Finding your salary range (pay scale) information

All UC employees may self-access information about the salary range for their positions online. See below for instructions for the Job Code Lookup System, available through UCPath for most employees, and separate instructions for Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory employees.

The University is committed to pay equity and pay transparency, and it is required to disclose to current employees the salary range for their position (pay scale) at the employee’s request. Learn more about California Pay Transparency and Applicant Salary Inquiry Restrictions below.

California pay transparency and applicant salary inquiry restrictions

Assembly Bill 168 and Senate Bill 1162 expanded pay equity and pay transparency by requiring California employers to disclose pay scales and prohibit the employer from seeking or relying on applicant salary history information in the recruitment process.

These laws further safeguard the right of all persons to obtain and hold employment without discrimination based on specified characteristics or status, and they are intended to address inequity in pay practices based on gender, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, protected veteran status, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

Given the University’s institutional values and commitment to diversity and ensuring equal pay, the University has aligned its policies and practices with the provisions in these laws.
