Q: What is red lining an employee's pay?  

"Red Lining" (or "Red Circling") an employee's salary refers to freezing an employee's base pay. This usually occurs when a highly tenured or highly skilled employee is paid at or above the highest pay rate for their job grade/classification. Employees who are red lined may still receive COLA increases and/or variable pay. However, base pay is unchanged unless the top pay rate for their job grade/classification is increased.
