Cycle of Reviews


To declare PMU guidelines with regards to Reclassification of Staff Positions and ensure uniform interpretation and application of this policy.


Each position will have a position description that will be reviewed annually to ensure that the description is current.  Where the responsibilities of a position have changed significantly then a new position description is to be written and approved by the appropriate Director.  The new position is then evaluated by the Human Resources Department and a recommendation is made to the Rector.

Upward Reclassification of Positions

An upward reclassification will result in an increase in salary.  Normally, the increase would be one (1) step on the salary grid.

Downward Reclassification of Positions

A downward reclassification will result in either a decrease in salary level or a freezing of the salary at the current level.
