2019-2020 RECLASSIFICATION STUDY

DEADLINE: Thursday, February 20, 2020, 4:30 PM

The Personnel Commission maintains a system whereby a classified employee may request the employee’s position be reviewed for a possible reclassification.

The period between January 15, 2020 and February 15, 2020 allows permanent classified staff to request a reclassification. The employee must submit a Position Description Questionnaire for classified positions to the Personnel Commission Office no later than Thursday, February 20, 2020, 4:30 p.m. [Note:  Additional days are added to the deadline due to the holidays.]

The basis for reclassification of a position shall be the gradual accretion or growth of duties over a period of two years. Recommendations as to gradual accretion will be made by the Director–Personnel Commission. The Commission shall be the final approving authority.

Requests for the reclassification study of a position may be initiated by an employee, the District Administration, or a recognized employee organization. Requests initiated by an employee or an employee organization shall include a listing of duties and a statement indicating the reasons the employee feels a reclassification is justified. Requests initiated by the District Administration shall include the above information as well as a statement by the employee's supervisor verifying the authorized duties of the position.

Each request for review shall be analyzed by the Personnel Commission staff and a written preliminary report provided to the Commission prior to April 15. The preliminary report will be distributed and shall be reviewed prior to the second regular meeting in May by the Commission, the employee, employee organizations, and the District.

The reports and comments will be considered and a final report will be submitted to the Commission prior to the second regular meeting of the Personnel Commission in June. Following the submission of the final report, the Personnel Commission will take appropriate action.

The Position Description Questionnaire is attached for distribution to any permanent classified employee who requests a copy.
