What is a Classification Study?

A classification study is a the process of studying, analyzing, and describing the nature and level of work performed by employees. Ohlone's Classification Study will ultimately produce uniformed job descriptions for every employee. The job descriptions will also ensure that the essential job functions are stated as well as the physical conditions under which each position works. The study is for all permanent classified employees (SEIU and CSEA) and all managers (DDAS).

The main goals of Ohlone's Classification Study are:

  1. Accurate job descriptions that accurately describes the employee’s duties.
  2. Provides a system for the future whereby the district can use when creating new classifications.

The classification study will also include a compensation study that will provide information on what other places are paying employees who are performing similar duties. The District will use this information to ensure that our employees are adequately compensated. Compensation will need to be negotiated with the respective unions.
