Approximately half of all University benefits-eligible positions (grades 25 through 36) are part of our job classification system. From time to time, shifting goals and initiatives may result in significant change to one or more positions within the unit. When this occurs with a position in the classification system, a review of the classification level of the job may be requested.
In the past, these requests were submitted to Human Resources throughout the year. Effective immediately, requests for position reclassification will be evaluated on a cyclical schedule that follows the academic semester (see below). This change does not affect the classification/reclassified and recruitment for new or currently vacant positions.
As you evaluate staffing needs we ask that you also review how tasks and responsibilities are distributed within the unit and how work flow and staffing configuration meet unit demands now and in the future. If the unit feels that a classification review may be warranted, requests should be submitted through the supervisor to the Chairperson or Department Head. Approved reclassifications will be effective January 1 (Fall Semester) or May 1 (Spring Semester).
