SEIU 33: Change of Assigned Duties

33.1                                                                                                                                No worker shall be required regularly to perform duties of a position outside of the classification to which he/she has been appointed. However, workers may be assigned temporarily duties outside their classification. In addition, under the conditions described in the Rules of the Civil Service Commission, a department head may temporarily assign to workers whatever duties are necessary to meet the requirements of an emergency situation.

 

33.2 Reclassification Procedure
A worker may request in writing a reevaluation of his/her job based on significant changes in job content or significant discrepancies between job content and the classification description. Such written request shall be submitted to his/her department head. Following review by the department, a written response shall be submitted to the worker within 45 days indicating whether the request will be forwarded to the Human Resources Department. In the event the worker feels his/her request has been unreasonably denied and that he/she is performing duties of a position outside of the classification to which he/she has been appointed, he/she shall have the right to file a grievance in accordance with Section 38 of the MOU.

In the event a position is reclassified, the re-classification shall be made effective retroactively to 30 days after the Human Resources Department receives the completed Job Description Questionnaire (JDQ) form(s).

In the event that the results of the study deny the worker the reclassification, the worker shall have the right to file an appeal in accordance with Civil Service Rule XIV, Section 1.B.
