The State Worker

Keep? Cut? Change? What experts said about your state job class


In response to requests from a half-dozen State Worker blog users, here’s the first-ever job-class-by-job-class review of every title in California’s state civil service. It includes the reviewers’ recommendations for what to do with each class and why. The spreadsheet is searchable, so if you’re a state employee, you can look up you own classification. (Use “Control-F” for PCs or “Command-F” for Apple computers.)

The analyses carry no legal weight. They merely document the suggestions of a team of human resources experts commissioned by the Department of Human Resources to assess California’s civil-service classification system. Any changes will require action by state departments, labor unions and the State Personnel Board.

Hat tip to Pat McConahay of CalHR and SPB for the quick turnaround on our request for the information.
