In my situation, I have a permanent schedule of working Sundays and night shift, so with premium pay and shift differential my salary is just under a 13 step 2. Could I use this as justification to negotiate at least a step 2 if I were to get a promotion or be selected for a GS13 position?



if you are promoted you would first look at the 12/6 salary (the two step rule) then find the salary on the 13 scale that is the next closest but not lower than 12/6. is that still a 13/1?

but to answer your question, no, premium pay/shift differential cannot be used as a justification for a higher step.

Based on my calculations 13/1 would be correct for a promotion from 12/4. Concur regarding the extra pay question.

Agree. Using the Washington DC - Baltimore pay table as an example:

1. GS-12 Step 4 pay is $89,703

2. GS-12 Step 6 pay is $95,139 ("2-step rule" - go up two steps from current grade and step)

3. GS-13 Step 1 pay is $96,970

Promotion to GS-13 will be at Step 1 because, after applying the "2-step rule," pay at Step 1 ($96,970) is the **closest without being lower** than the promotee's **current pay + two steps up** ($95,139) in the previous grade.

The step rule is on base pay...not licality pay. There wouldn’t be a difference if you used licality pay but it matters if you are changing locations.

If you are in a special pay series....you look at the vase and see where it is on the general gs pay series, if you were a 11 step 3 in special pay it could really be 11 step 6 in the standard gs pay.

Thus happened to me.

I was a gs 9 step 2 in special pay and moved to a non special pay in a promotion and it put me in gs 11 step 6 as a promotion.
