Reclassification/Reallocation of Existing Positions

Classification & Compensation determines the classification of a position based on the majority of the position's assigned duties and responsibilities. When the duties and responsibilities of a position change over time such that they are more typical of another classification, a position may be reviewed (audited) to see if a reclassification or reallocation of the position is appropriate.

Statute & Rules Section 250.5 Definitions

Reclassification - Reassignment of an existing position within a promotional line.

Reallocation - Reassignment of an existing position to a class which is a part of a different
 promotional line, or to a class which is not a part of any promotional line.

In accordance with Civil Service System Rule 250.30 (f)(1), "An employee, whose position is reallocated or reclassified, shall be eligible for continued employment in the position which is reallocated or reclassified, provided she/he establishes eligibility for such a new class. She/he may establish eligibility by meeting the minimum qualifications for the new class to which the position has been reallocated or reclassified, and by passing an examination for the new class.  She/he must complete a probationary period in the position in the new class."

A request to reallocate or reclassify any existing position may originate with the incumbent and/or the employing unit. Refer to the information below.
