Job Family 2

OVERVIEW

Job Family 2 consists of 307 employee in 86 jobs, including Public Safety Officers, Custodians, Skilled Trades, Stores Specialists, and various positions in Property Control, Postal Services, etc. In order to ensure that job descriptions were accurate and up-to-date for job evaluation,  job descriptions were reviewed by supervisors of Job Family 2 jobs.

Once all the job descriptions were reviewed and finalized, the Job Family 2 Job Evaluation Committee met to evaluate all Job Family 2 job descriptions using the Job Family 2 Job Evaluation Plan, which can be found by clicking here. Job Evaluation for Job Family 2 was completed in November of 2006.

Multiple salary surveys were used to determine market pay for as many jobs in Job Family 2 as possible, and salary survey information gathered from the jobs that have market data, called benchmark jobs, were combined with the results of the job evaluation committee to calculate a pay line. This pay line associates job evaluation points with a dollar amount, enabling a pay rate to be established for jobs that do not have salary survey data. Because jobs typically do not have flat rates, jobs receiving similar point totals are grouped together to form a pay grade. Each new pay grade has an established pay range with a minimum, midpoint, and maximum value; all jobs in a pay grade will be paid within this established range.

Further information about these processes can be found by following one of the "Events" links on the left side of the page.

CURRENT EVENTS

New pay grades and ranges for all Job Family 2 jobs were developed by the Compensation Analysts Team, and were reviewed and approved by Admin Council. Information about the new Job Family 2 pay grades and ranges can be found by clicking here. The new pay grades and salary ranges bear no relationship to the former pay grades and ranges. The first digit of the pay grade represents the job family associated with the grade.

All employees were notified of the their new pay grade and range on January 25, 2008. Following the notification of employees, the Staff Compensation Committee held a series of Open Forums in which the process of developing these new pay grades and ranges was discussed and employees had the opportunity to ask any questions about the new compensation system. The PowerPoint that was presented at these Open Forums can be found by clicking here.

Employees were also able to appeal certain decisions made in association with the Staff Compensation Project. Examples of decisions that could be appealed were the degree levels assigned during job evaluation and assignment to a job family. Appeals hearings were held in February and March of 2008, and employees were notified of the results of their appeal at the end of March 2008.
