Please note total pre-tax Gross Earnings includes all types of earnings, such as base pay, overtime pay, cafeteria plan contribution for purchase of medical insurance, payout of all remaining accumulated leave at time of separation from the City of Burbank (as allowed under MOUs and applicable Resolutions), and other pay and cash benefits. Other pay and cash benefits include:

  • Differential Payments/Special Compensation for specific additional duties or certifications
  • Working Out of Class payments
  • Cash Benefits (such as, car allowance, mileage, professional development, rideshare incentive, tool allowance, uniform allowance, and wellness incentive)
  • Imputed Income (the value of certain non-cash benefits that must be taxed per IRS regulations)
  • Signing and retention pay

Beginning in 2016, the reports have accumulated leave payouts at time of separation as a separate category and the cafeteria plan as a separate category.  Previously, these earnings were included in the other pay and cash benefits category. 

*The 2014 reports include earnings of an additional pay period. This equates to 27 pay periods instead of the traditional 26 pay periods per year. The additional pay period occurs every 11 years.
