Staff Policies and Procedures Manual
B. Salary Administration Plan
An upward reclassification involves a significant growth in the duties and responsibilities over an extended period of time, which thereby results in reevaluation of the position to a higher salary range. Staff experiencing an upward reclassification will not receive an immediate salary adjustment unless it is necessary to raise the salary to the new range minimum.
A downward reclassification occurs when job duties and responsibilities decrease, which thereby results in reevaluation of the position to a lower salary range. Staff experiencing a downward reclassification to a job with a lower wage or salary range generally will maintain their current rate of pay.
