Section 240.215 - Classification plan; job share; career ladder; transfers.
(1) The Personnel Division of the Oregon Department of Administrative Services shall adopt a classification plan which shall group all positions in the classified service in classifications based on their duties, authority and responsibilities; and which shall set forth for each classification, a class title, a statement of the minimum qualifications, duties, authority and responsibilities thereof. Each classification of positions may be subdivided and classes may be grouped and ranked in an appropriate manner.
(2) The allocation of positions within the various operating agencies to the classifications in the classification plan shall be performed by the agency appointing authority with post-audit review by the division. Agencies shall allocate positions to the available class that most accurately describes the work based upon the assigned duties, authorities and responsibilities. If a position is found to be misallocated, the agency shall change the allocation of the position to the proper class for the work, whether or not the assigned duties have changed since the previous allocation decision.
(3) In adopting a classification system, the division shall consult with appointing authorities to determine the positions in a class of positions that can be classified as job-sharing positions.
(4) The division shall group jobs into broad, statewide classes, whenever possible, consistent with good management practices and ORS 240.190 and 243.650 to 243.806. In this process, the division shall work to reduce the total number of classes, in conjunction with developing career ladders and voluntary cross-agency transfers in concert with employees of the agency. It is intended that employees be provided the necessary training in those instances where additional skills are required.
