Open Request for Proposals


  • Wage and Compensation Structure

    Our current compensation system and salary band structure was instituted five years ago based on recommendations from a nationally known consulting firm. Today, the SPLC’s growth — our staff nearly doubling in size and expansion into new states — calls for a thorough review of the compensation structure.

    Accordingly, we have initiated a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to identify a qualified vendor to help us:

    • Conduct a comprehensive study of our positions, classifications, and compensation;
    • Propose changes to the salary band structure to ensure we are offering competitive compensation to recruit and retain employees;
    • Propose changes to the salary band structure to ensure our compensation is commensurate with our role as a leading civil rights organization that deeply values its employees;
    • Propose changes to current positions’ classifications and salaries so that there is uniformity across all SPLC departments and divisions;
    • Determine if we should continue to use or modify a separate step scale for attorneys where base salaries for non-leadership positions are pegged to their law school graduation date; and
    • Propose a structure to accommodate future growth and creation of new positions.
