Classified Positions

Classified employees are assigned to positions within the occupational families listed in the Commonwealth’s Compensation Plan.  These employees are covered by the provisions of the Virginia Personnel Act (Title 2.2, § 2.2 -2900 of the Code of Virginia), once they have completed the probationary period.

The pay system for a classified position is based upon the position’s role title and the state’s classification system.  The position’s role title is based upon complexity, results and accountability stated in classified employee’s official Employee Work Plan (EWP).  Classified employees may view their job description via Careers, the system that UMW uses for Position Management and Applicant Tracking.

Each year, supervisors and classified employees will review position descriptions and certify that they are accurate.  If a job has been changed significantly for an extended period of time, the employee and supervisor should discuss these changes.  If appropriate, the supervisor will submit a revised position description to Human Resources (via Careers) for review.
