Reclassification is the review of a position’s classification due to a permanent change to the job description in order to ensure an appropriate pay scale and position title relative to the position duties and responsibilities.
Job reclassification requests evaluate a position, not an employee’s performance. Performance in a position or the quality of an employee’s work are not valid reasons for reclassification. The reclassification process is appropriate for when a staff position has changed due to permanent changes in the level of duties and responsibilities of a given position.
Job reclassification is recommended when one or more of the following has changed for a position:
- nature of work
- typical duties and responsibilities
- decision making
The reclassification process is NOT intended for when:
- tasks and responsibilities are currently in the job description
- the volume of work has increased
- changes to the work are short-term changes
Requests for reclassification that are submitted to HR Compensation are reviewed in the order that they are received.
