Changing a Position Description

Update the official position description of any position that is changed to reflect additional duties granted or duties taken away.

An up-to-date position description gives employees a guideline for their tasks. Any time there is a change to a position, it is important to make changes to the official position description.

Additional duties and a change in title will result in a salary increase. Review the salary tables to determine if the new salary is over the maximum for the grade level. If the salary increase will be over the maximum, you will need to submit a President's Approval letter with the ePTF.
