Position Audits

According to the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) Section 124.14 and the Administrative Code (OAC) Section 123:1-3-01 a position audit may be requested for a position held by a state civil service, or classified, employee.  A request for a position audit is made to determine if the position is properly classified.   Requests can be made by an employee or supervisor and are based on actual duties performed by a classified staff member.  Duties must be permanent in nature and not temporary duties.   

The position audit process consists of completing a Job Analysis Questionnaire for classified staff, which is completed and forwarded to the Office of Human Resources. A staff member from the Office of Human Resources will review and research information contained in the Questionnaire and contacts the employee to discuss the audit.  When a classification is determined both the employee and supervisor are informed and a current, up-dated position description is developed

Position audits that result in a higher classification will be effective on the beginning of the pay period following the date Human Resources received the audit questionnaire. The employee will be placed at the end of probation rate for the new grade or a 6% increase, whichever is greater.

Requests to audit a position from either the employee or immediate supervisor may not be submitted more than once a year.

If you are not satisfied with the results of an audit, you may file an appeal with the Ohio Personnel Board of Review, 65 East State Street, Columbus, OH 43215, within thirty days after receipt of the recommendation.
