WHAT IS A JOB REVIEW?
A Job Review is the systematic study of a job, through job evaluation and/or job analysis. Click here for an overview of the job review process.
A Job Analysis is the systematic study of a job to determine which activities and responsibilities it includes, its relative importance to other jobs, the qualifications necessary for the performance of the job and the conditions under which the work is performed. An important concept in job analysis is that the job, not the person doing the job, is assessed, even though HR may collect some job analysis data from the incumbent.
Job analysis is often confused with job evaluation, but the two activities are quite different. Job Evaluation is the process of comparing a job to other jobs within the organization and/or the market to determine the appropriate pay rate.
Reclassification is a new and/or significantly revised job and is the result of job analysis or evaluation.
A request for a job review does not presume any particular outcome and could result in a pay grade increase, decrease, or no change at all.
WHY MIGHT I CONSIDER A RECLASSIFICATION OF A POSITION?
- It is a permanent change in duties -- not a special project or short-term assignment;
- The addition, deletion, or change affects a duty that constitutes a significant portion of the job (at least 15%);
- The duty which is added, deleted, or changed is substantially different in level and type from the balance of the job duties so that it seems reasonable that the change in that one duty would affect the evaluation of the job on one or more job evaluation factors; or
- The levels of education or experience required for the job noticeably change. These requirements should reflect standards for satisfactory job performance, not an incumbent's qualifications.
