DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
In June 2016, the County engaged Koff and Associates (K&A) for the provision of professional services to design, conduct, and assist in recommending an implementation approach of a classification (Phase I) and compensation (Phase II) study for all County positions. The overall goals of the classification and compensation study included: developing a competitive and fiscally responsible pay and benefit structure that is based upon market data and meets the needs of the County with regards to recruitment and retention of qualified staff; ensuring employees be recognized for the level and scope of work performed and that they are paid on a fair and competitive basis; and ensuring class specifications reflect current programs, responsibilities, and technology.

In September 2017, the Human Resources Department requested and received Board approval (Legistar # 16-0098) to implement, in phases, the County-Wide classification study.

The Human Resources Department has been working with departments (management and employees) and unions to finalize for Board consideration the newly-proposed class specifications and reclassifications (and subsequent allocation changes). The following downward reclassification is the result of Koff & Associates studying the position and making a recommendation to ensure that the duties currently being performed are in alignment with the correct classification.
