Annual Crossing Bar Exercise
The University conducts an Annual Crossing Bar Exercise whereby staff members in regular employment are eligible to apply for "crossing bar" in the salary scale.
Staff members who have reached the ceiling of their current salary scale of the respective posts may apply to "cross bar" to the next salary scale within the same post.
Staff members are only eligible to apply for "crossing bar" in the salary scale if they meet the following:-
(i) Staff must be confirmed in their employment;
(ii) Already on maximum of the salary facing the salary bar for at least 12 months;
(iii) Staff receiving salary increment which is less than the one standard increment and whose monthly basic salary has reached the ceiling of the current salary scale.
The staff member is required to submit their application for "crossing bar" in the salary scale using the prescribed forms which may be downloaded at the staff intranet under UTAR Forms - DHR Forms.
The Annual Crossing Bar Exercise is normally announced in the month of August each year via the University's mail master to all staff.
