          2.    If the salary adjustment computation results in a decimal amount equal to 49 cents or less (based on rounding to the nearest cent), the resulting monthly salary shall be rounded down to the lower whole dollar (e.g. $5678.86 x 1.08 = $6133.28 rounded to $6133.00).

          3.    If multiple salary adjustments occur on the same day, the rounding shall occur at the end of the calculation.
