HR Reference Guide


Filling a position with an individual who is qualified for a lower class, in the same class series as the position is classified.  A position in certain classes can also be underfilled with an appropriate trainee level position (e.g., Staff Professional Trainee, Fiscal/Business Professional Trainee, Health/Human Services Professional Trainee).

An underfill of a position above the journey level (see NAC 284.069) requires the approval of the Division of Human Resource Management.

An employee or former employee may not noncompetitively underfill a position at grade 30 or higher if the position is at a higher grade than the position the employee currently holds or the former employee held.
