Title

Human Resources Department recommending the Board approve and adopt the revised Health and Human Services Agency department-specific class specification of Veterans Service Officer.

 

FUNDING:  N/A

Body

DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND

 

The Board of Supervisors approved the transfer of the Veteran Affairs Office from the Recorder-Clerk/Elections/Veterans Department to establish Veterans Affairs as a stand-alone program within the Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA).  Prior to the transfer, the Recorder-Clerk acted as the department head for the Veteran Affairs Department.  However, changes to the class specification of Veterans Service Officer were not immediately made following this reorganization, and the class specification continued to reference the Veterans Service Office and Recorder-Clerk.  Human Resources (HR) has revised the class spec to remove those mentions and include the appropriate references to the program within HHSA. 

 

In addition, given the movement to HHSA, the class spec has been updated to better align with the required duties of the classification.  Along with the changes in duties, the minimum qualifications have been updated to better align with comparator agencies to attract a larger, yet still qualified applicant pool; and the following education and experience introduction statement has been revised (as previously approved by the Board):

 

Current Language: Any combination of the required experience, education, and training that would provide the essential knowledge, skills, and abilities is qualifying.

 

Proposed Language: A combination of the required experience, education, and training that would provide the essential knowledge, skills, and abilities is qualifying; however, education may not solely substitute for the required experience.

 

ALTERNATIVES

The Board could choose not to approve any of the recommendations herein and direct Human Resources to make revisions or conduct additional analysis.
