Reclassification or reallocation

The following definitions will apply to this section.

  1. Reclassification refers to a change from one (1) classification to another classification whenever the director of human resources determines (subject to review by the commission in the case of classified civil service positions) that the classification is no longer consistent with the actual work performed. The pay grade may or may not change because of a reclassification.
  2. Reallocation refers to a change from one (1) pay grade to another pay grade whenever the director of human resources determines (subject to review by the commission in the case of classified civil service positions) that the pay grade is no longer consistent with the actual work performed. Job classification does not change because of reallocation.
     

Employees in positions that have been reclassified or in classifications that have been reallocated with an increased level in pay grade will have their salary placed at the point in the higher-grade salary range that will provide a minimum increase of seven (7) percent if the reclassification or reallocation is to a grade one (1) grade higher than that existing prior to the reclassification or reallocation; an additional increase of three (3) percent if the reclassification or reallocation is to a grade two (2) grades higher; and, two (2) percent for each additional grade thereafter; provided however, the appointing authority may recommend and the urban county council may approve a rate of pay above the recommended rate of pay in recognition of market demands or in recognition of the experience or exceptional qualifications of the employee. In no case however, will the employee receive a salary lower than the entrance rate of pay for the grade salary range.

Employees in positions that have been reclassified or in classifications that have been reallocated with a decreased level in pay grade will retain their salary at the higher level. All employees receiving a rate of pay above the maximum rate prescribed for the class to which their position was reclassified or reallocated will continue to receive such pay without further increase so long as their positions remain in a class having a rate below the rate range now being paid the employee.

The effective date of all reclassifications and reallocations will be the beginning of the next pay period following approval by the urban county council.
