Reclassification Project

February 2, 2015 Reclass Update

CAPS will resume its work with CalHR and the various departments that employ scientists immediately after ratification.  CAPS’ goals are to address salaries for each level in the series, increase promotional opportunities, increase lateral transfer opportunities, expand classifications vertically to allow continued scientific work without the need to supervise others, and promote career growth generally.

CAPS wants you to be able to evaluate these for yourself and to provide feedback to CAPS if you so desire.
