Classification Study and Classification Specifications

The Classification Study began in 1999 with a second phase in 2002. The study developed a new classification structure for the 15 community colleges, taking into consideration academic credentials, experience, and seniority. The study provided additional criteria to maintain the new classification structure for newly hired employees, promotions, and salary adjustments. The classification structure promotes the recruitment and retention of qualified individuals.

The classification of new unit members is maintained by the individual college. Each Human Resources office completes the appropriate M-002 or M-004 classification document for new hires and reviews it with the individual. When the new employee is not in agreement with the classification, he or she may appeal to the Classification Appeals Committee.

Classification Appeals Committee

The Classification Appeals Process offers unit members the opportunity to appeal the classification. Individuals should ensure that any outside documentation to support the appeal, such as transcripts, is in the personnel file at the college. Appellants should also be sure to enclose all information for consideration in the review. Certifications, licensures, and professional development point criteria have not been developed and are not subjects of appeal at this time.
