Position classification is the formal assignment of a job title, salary grade, and job description that is developed based on the requirements of the position. The components of a position classification include scope of duties and responsibilities, skills and abilities, educational criteria, length of experience, and market pay information. After all documents and approval signatures are obtained, the classification analysis can take from 7 - 10 business days, pending receipt of relative resource information. Packets received without the appropriate approval signatures will be returned.

Reclassification A position reclassification occurs when a position has changed such that it no longer is appropriately placed in the wage and salary structure. As a standard, at least 40% of the job should have changed and the employee must be performing the new duties a minimum of one year to be eligible to apply for reclassification. Reclassification is not intended to recognize individual achievement or an increase in volume of work. Reclassification requests will resume after a review of the process.
