The Classification Plan of the California State University serves as a basis for maintaining salary levels for employees which are equitable in relation to the work performed. Through the process of job analysis, all administrative, academic-related and staff positions are allocated to an appropriate classification on the basis of job content. Duties, tasks and responsibilities of a position must be clearly and accurately described, in writing, before an analysis can be conducted. The attached form is provided for this purpose. The description is completed by the employee who performs the duties. Once the employee writes the description, the manager is responsible for determining the accuracy of the information before submitting the description for review.
