206 Job Audits
A job audit is the mechanism to review the duties and responsibilities of individual positions to ensure that a position continues to be properly classified within the classification structure in relation to other University positions. After such a review, a job may be upgraded to a higher classification, may remain in the same classification, or may be downgraded to a lower classification. A job audit is an analysis of the responsibilities assigned to a position, not an evaluation of performance of an individual.
Job audits may be requested by staff members, supervisors, or may be initiated by the Compensation and Classification Section of Human Resources and Library Human Resources. A job audit is appropriate when the responsibilities of a position have changed significantly and substantially either through expanded or reduced responsibilities or through reorganization.
The results of managerial and professional job audits are not grievable under the University grievance procedure, but may be appealed to Human Resources.
