No worker shall be required regularly to perform duties of a position outside of the classification to which they have 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.

33.1.            Reclassification Procedure

A worker may request in writing a re‑evaluation of their 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 their department head. Following review by the department, a written response shall be submitted to the worker within forty-five (45) days indicating whether the request will be forwarded to the Human Resources Department. In the event the worker feels their request has been unreasonably denied and that they are performing duties of a position outside of the classification to which they have been appointed, they 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 the first full pay period thirty (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.
