Questions should be directed to Compensation Administration at 247-1714 or 247-1715.

The Reclassification Committee is comprised of senior administrators and meets once quarterly to consider reclassification requests submitted by departments.

A job reclassification is defined as a position adjustment which occurs when an existing, budgeted position’s job content has significantly changed (e.g. more than 15%).

Any department requesting a reclassification of an employee’s position should submit the following to their dean or respective Senior Officer for approval: 

  1. Employee’s name, current title, and current salary
  2. Employee’s current job description and a revised job description with new or additional duties highlighted in yellow.
  3. Proposed new title
  4. Current departmental organization chart
  5. Revised departmental organization chart proposed, post-reclassification
  6. Written justification for the reclassification, which includes:
    a.  The proposed funding source for any salary adjustments to be to the employee’s salary and
    b.  the department’s basis of assumption for the new salary.

If the Dean and Senior Officer approves the reclassification request, s/he will forward the request and attendant paperwork to WFMO Compensation Administration.  All complete reclassification requests (documentation and approvals) must be received by Compensation administration no later than the Due Date noted above for consideration at the meeting indicated above.

All approved reclassification requests will be returned to WFMO for completion of the review by WFMO Compensation Administration.  Documentation will also be reviewed and approved by the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE).

The requesting department will be notified of the Reclassification Committee approval and the impending review by OIE.  Departments will be notified by WFMO Compensation Administration of those reclassification requests that are not approved.
