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.


If an agency or employee does not agree with a classification decision, the agency or employee may file a written appeal with the Administrator of the Division of Human Resource Management within 30 days of the date of receipt of written notice of the action.

The Administrator will issue a decision on the appeal within 30 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.
