DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION
The Human Resources Department recommends the Board adopt the following classification implementation strategy:
Classification changes and revised job descriptions will be submitted to the Board in groups (based on the phases noted below), at which time Human Resources will request the Board take the following actions, as applicable:
- Adopt the revised job descriptions
- Adopt the recommended classification changes - up, or down, or lateral
o In cases of an upward re-classification, the Board may adopt the change (which may have compensation implications) or recommend the work be reassigned to an appropriate classification.
Given the delays in the study, the Human Resources Department believes this recommendation to be the most efficient to (i) ensure swift implementation of the classification study, (ii) ensure employees are recognized for the level and scope of work performed, and (iii) ensure job descriptions reflect current programs, duties, and responsibilities.
