Upon submission of a Position Questionnaire (see FORMS), the Division of Human Resource Management makes a determination to approve or deny a request based upon whether there has been significant change in a position's duties and responsibilities and if the change is intended to be permanent.


An agency or employee may appeal the grant or denial of reclassification or reallocation in writing to the Administrator of the Division of Human Resource Management within 20 working days of the date of receipt of written notice of the action.

The Administrator will issue a decision on the appeal within 20 working days after receiving the appeal unless prohibited by the number of appeals resulting from a classification study or an agreement (with the agency or employee) to extend the time for a decision.

An agency or employee may appeal in writing the Administrator's decision to the Personnel Commission within 30 days after receipt of written notice of the Administrator's decision.
