Compensation Review Program

These guidelines are provided to assist and inform managers and collective bargaining employees alike. However, they apply only to collective bargaining positions and not to those classified in the Management Personnel Program.

Classification is the organizing of positions into groups (or classes) on the basis of similar duties, responsibilities and qualification requirements. A class is a specific group of occupational positions, which are similar in duties and responsibilities so as to justify common treatment in compensation, qualification requirements and other employment policies and procedures.
