Classification Descriptions are available for viewing as well.  Keep in mind, Classification Descriptions are broader than specific job descriptions and explain the type of work typically performed by jobs within that title.  It describes work of a similar level and nature, requiring similar level of experience and education, and generally encompasses the work of several people.  As explained at the time the study began, the study focused on the classification level and sought to identify and define clear levels of responsibility and decision-making in the college.

Based upon the extensive and collaborative study, and the communications to date, we anticipate that most employees will find their classification and pay grade appropriate.  If you feel that your classification placement needs further review, an appeals process is available.  Appeals require collaboration with your supervisor and department manager and will be accepted in March 2012 for review in April 2012.  The appeal form includes instructions and deadlines. Completion of a new Position Description Questionnaire may also be necessary.  See the appeal form or call Betty Henninger (x2568) for guidance.

Policies and procedures detailing many aspects of the new classification and compensation is available for your review.
