Job Classification Structure

JSU’s job classification structure reflects job categories, job groups, job levels, and the respective positions, position grades. The levels and grades within job categories and positions are determined by the level of responsibility and the skills, professional knowledge, and experiences needed to effectively perform the assigned duties. 

Reflected in the Classification Structure are positions and the respective responsibilities and duties of each position which are assignable to one employee. Although there may be multiple individuals with the same job or job title, each individual employee with that job title has his or her own position. Each position is accompanied by a position description which is a structured document assigning work to a specific position and outlines the expectations to be performed after customary orientation and training, but is not intended to cover every kind of work assignment in detail, or every activity during the workday. The position description is the key document used to determine the appropriate grade and level of a position.
