The Position Classification Program is designed to provide staff employees with a uniform classification and compensation plan which promotes the concept of equal pay for equal work.

In establishing each classification, the Office of Human Resources (OHR) studies the duties, responsibilities, required level of education and experience, knowledge, skills, abilities, compensable work factors, internal equity, market analysis, and availability of funds for each job.  This general information, common to all positions within a particular classification, makes up a job description. In recruiting for a vacancy, the employing department may add special qualifications in order to meet particular operating needs.

Job descriptions are updated periodically to assure individual employees of both internal and external equity.

Most job classifications have a specified minimum and maximum salary range. However, in those jobs determined to be P & A current salary survey information will be used to determine minimum pay range. New employees are normally appointed at the minimum salary for their particular job classification. Regardless of the source of funds for salary, all staff employees are governed by the same compensation policies. The OHR is responsible for the administration of the Position Classification Program.
