Working Out Of Classification

  • An employee is "working out of class" when he/she is temporarily charged to perform duties of a higher rated position/classification within the same bargaining unit which are separate and distinct from the employee's own position/classification for a period set forth in the employee's bargaining unit.  Each bargaining unit has specific rules concerning out-of-class assignments.

    The higher rated position/classification may have been vacated due to illness, retirement, resignation, promotion or organizational changes.

    Supervisors should complete an Ask HR form to request a "working out of class" assignment.  Please choose "Working out of Class" from the category, "What is your question about?".  Once your request is received, an HR Partner will reach out to you to explain the process and gather more information.

    If you have any questions on the specifics, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Human Resources or Ask HR.
