Position Management
Management Service Type
If a position is in management service, the agency Human Resource (HR) section designates the position as confidential, managerial or supervisory.
Confidential: One who assists and acts in a confidential capacity to a person who formulates, determines and effectuates management policies in the area of collective bargaining (the primary confidential employee.)  The person being assisted must be found to be confidential before finding that an assistant to a confidential employee is confidential.
Managerial: One who possesses authority to formulate and carry out management decisions, or who represents management’s interest by taking or effectively recommending discretionary actions that control or implement employer policy, and who has the discretion in the performance of these management responsibilities beyond routine discharge of duties.
Supervisory:  One who has the authority to hire, discharge, reward, discipline, and respond to grievances or effectively recommend such action.
