A friend is about to pick up GS9 from their first career ladder promotion. Their HR dept is giving them a new effective date which is the first day of the next pay period after their 1 year anniversary. I know that this is a standard practice when accepting a higher grade new position.


Is it standard on Career Ladder promotions to move the effective date so it can be the first day of the new pay period?

Yes.  Usually if you are up for a promotion and the date falls within the first 4-5 days of the pp -- they will move your date back to the sunday the pp begins....usually the date is one or two day because of how the calendar falls.  you can only get the new pay at the start of the new pp

We don't move it back ... We move it forward to the Sunday and pay plan after serving one year. If you start Monday then your promotion is effective the next year plus one pay period because you haven't served a full year by the time one year comes around.
