POL 5.315 Addition of New Classified Staff Positions

Purpose is to ensure that the classification and pay schedule is properly maintained in the event that new jobs are created within the college.

The addition of new functions or services within the college may require new job classifications. The evaluation of new jobs is the responsibility of the director of human resources and the classification subcommittee of the personnel committee.

Classification and pay grade decisions will be based on labor market survey data for comparable jobs (if available), the college’s ability to pay and a rating of the job using the point factor evaluation plan.

Approved June 10. 1993

Revised June 25, 2004
