In establishing these rates, the following factors shall be taken into consideration by the director:

(2) prevailing rates for comparable positions in other public employment and in private business;
(3) difficulty and responsibility of work;
(4) the usual education and experience required;
(5) the current cost of living;
(6) turnover rates in the state service; and
(7) maintenance or other benefits received.

Revisions to the pay plan or plans shall be prepared, adopted, and made effective in accordance with other provisions of article 5 of these regulations.

(b) When a pay plan or plans are to be installed or revised, instructions for installing or revising the plan or plans shall be prepared by the director, including instructions for handling circumstances where an employee's pay is above the pay grade, below the pay grade, or not on a step of the pay grade for the class in which the employee is employed. The instructions shall not be required if these circumstances can be handled by application of appropriate regulations.
