Express Job Classification
Express classification provides the opportunity for departments to classify a new or reclassify a vacant position without further review by the compensation office.
This service option eliminates the process of completing the Position Analysis Booklet (PAB) detailing the duties and responsibilities of a position when in some cases, the classification is clear from inception and the review time exceeds the value added.
If a position is eligible for classification through the "Express" process, there are two criteria:
- the job classification currently exists within the department; and
- the job title is marked "yes" under the "Express" heading on the "Staff Job Descriptions" list.
Instructions for Express Job Classification
The "Express" job classification option to initiate the recruitment process requires the department to submit an Employment Requisition Form (ERF). The ERF should follow the normal approval process.
If the job meets both criteria, the word "EXPRESS" should be noted on the ERF along with the job title. This notation identifies the position as part of the "Express" process and alerts medical center finance, the budget office, and the employment office that no additional classification review is required to post the position.
The compensation office invites you to use this process in an effort to streamline job classification and recruitment. For further information, or if you have questions, please call the compensation office at 314-977-2680.
