Title

Human Resources Department recommending the Board adopt and authorize the Chair to sign Resolution 132-2019 to approve, due to a downward reclassification, the deletion of 1.0 FTE Animal Control Operations Manager and the addition of 1.0 FTE Supervising Animal Control Officer in the Health and Human Services Agency.

Body

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. 

 

Health and Human Services Agency

Department-specific class specification:

 

                     Supervising Animal Control Officer

o                     Downward reclassification of 1.0 FTE position from Animal Control Operations Manager to Supervising Animal Control Officer.

§                     The salary is proposed to be Y-rated, which is consistent with Personnel Rule 612.3, Downward Reclassification. 

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could choose not to adopt the proposed downward reclassification and direct Human Resources to conduct additional analysis.
