Classification Issues

Classification issues will generally fall into one of several types of reviews.  Below is a brief explanation of each review. 


Routine Review 

      • Vacant position – common position, generally does not require in-depth review and analysis. 


Complex Review  

      • Upgrading a position 
      • Unique vacant position 
      • Small reorganizations


Occupational Study Review - (used for system maintenance) 

      • For reviewing an entire classification family, or a large agency reorganization.
      • These studies will ensure that classifications in occupational groups remain accurate.
      • Priority will be based upon needs identified by the agencies as well as families identified by HRD as critical issues.
      • HRD will work collaboratively with agencies to identify any issues in the areas of:
            • Classification (appropriate level and /or class family and FLSA status).
            • MQ's (relevant certifications, etc.) and class specifications.
            • Recruitment, selection or training.
