Reclassifying a Position

Classification & Compensation Home

 

The evaluation of a vacant or occupied position based upon a substantial increase in the level of complexity, or a marked change in the assigned duties and responsibilities, is generally referred to as a reclassification request or job audit. Reclassification of a position could result in a position being moved up or down in status and level of compensation. Factors used to determine level of compensation are based upon university, system-wide, state and national comparison and analysis. Requests of this nature are handled as follows:

  2. Classification staff review position history to compare former duties with newly assigned/changed duties.

  3. Department is notified of results of analysis and given approval to begin recruitment.
