7/26/23 – Meeting Recap

Please review the agenda and meeting content. You will find the respective slides and attachments ​pertaining to each topic below.

CNC Statewide Meeting Agenda 7/26/23

Workday Audit

The Workday team will be working on an audit of employees who have a mismatch between their assigned grade profile and their assigned job profile, meaning they are not linked within Workday.

The job profile might be incorrect as there are job profiles at different salary ranges (based on CBA/Policy), or it could be an incorrect grade profile which could cause an employee to get compensated incorrectly.

Additionally, having a mismatch could cause errors for those employees on the automatic monthly files (i.e., PERS Pickup and Step Increases).

Agencies who have employees with an identified mismatch will receive an email that includes a list of identified employees, general guidance on how to proceed, and some helpful resources.

 

Pay Equity

We've received several similar questions related to pay equity and thought it would be helpful to highlight some pay equity guidance. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact chro.payequity@das.oregon.gov.

 

Pay Equity Administration Guidance

The pay equity calculator should be used by all agencies to determine the salary placement on all new positions (new hires, promotions, laterals, demotions), and any request for an unscheduled pay equity adjustment (from an employee or management requested review). Agencies should not be using the CMP Pay Equity report – the calculator replaces the old process.

 

New Position (new-to-state hire, promotion, lateral, demotion)

  • If the candidate is a current state employee (and after running the pay equity calculator), the expected step is lower than the employee's current salary, the agency needs to follow CBA or policy to ensure the appropriate contract or policy language is applied.

 

For example, most contracts and the policy indicate an employee receives at least one step upon promotion. If the pay equity calculator indicates the appropriate step is 3, yet when following CBA/policy, step 4 provides the employee one step upon promotion, the individual should be placed on step 4. The agency analyst needs to document the reason (with reference to CBA/policy) in the notes section of the pay equity calculator.

 

  • If the candidate is a current state employee, the agency also may take into consideration other data points, such as a long WOC or a close BSD, to make a salary placement. Again, the reason for the salary step placement needs to be documented in the notes section of the pay equity calculator.

     
  • The agency may take into consideration a specific skill set the candidate (whether current state employee or new to state) brings if the position being filled is a broadly defined classification, such as an OPA 3. If the agency is seeking an individual who has experience in a specific niche policy/program, and the candidate has the unique skillset, then it may be appropriate to bring the candidate in at a higher step. The reason for the higher step needs to be documented in the notes section of the pay equity calculator.

 

NOTE: If placing a candidate on a step that deviates from the pay equity calculator (i.e., creating a high outlier), the agency should be prepared to respond to/defend that decision if audited or challenged through other legal venues, which is why the documentation in the notes section is so important.

 

Unscheduled Pay Equity Adjustment in Current Position

The agency needs to use the pay equity calculator to determine the appropriate step. If the calculator reflects the employee should be on a higher step, the agency should submit its analysis and the associated documentation (pay equity calculator, employee/management request) to DAS CnC for review.  DAS will continue to use the pay equity calculator as the determining factor to approve or deny unscheduled pay equity adjustments.

Also, as a reminder, our next Pay Equity Office Hours will be Tuesday, August 8 from 10AM-11AM.

 

SEIU Tentative Agreement – Agency Initiated WOC Pending Upward Reclassification

SEIU TA 

We have reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) with SEIU regarding WOC pending reclassification and how to handle the compensation. This language will be effective upon union ratification and policy will be updated at a future date as well. Please see document above for details. 

 

Current PEMs

We will be running reports to identify the remaining PEM's and will be reaching out to agencies to determine appropriate allocations. Agencies will need to notify these employees and respond to any appeals consistent with Policy.  For unique positions that do not fit within the new TOMP classifications, DAS CNC will work with affected agencies to develop appropriate classifications. 

 

Developing Questions to Support an Analysis​

Asking the Right Questions - Class Spec and PD

This training content was created by our DAS CNC Consultants to assist Classification & Compensation Analysts across the State to develop and answer the right questions as it pertains to the Position Description and Classification Specs.

 

Limited Duration Appointment Reminder

Limited Duration (LD) appointments:​

  • Must be reviewed for appropriate classification prior to establishing and recruiting.
  • May not be reclassified. If the LD position is changed, best practice is to end the appointment and establish a new one pursuant to state policies 30.000.01 and  40.025.02. Refer also to your CBA for guidance when applicable.
  • Are NOT temporary appointments and should not be treated like one. Please refer to state policy 40.025.01.
  • All LD appointments must have a completed Limited Duration Agreement form.

8/30/23 – Meeting Recap

Please review the meeting content. You will find the respective slides and attachments pertaining to each topic below.

Classification Update

Bargaining is wrapping up, and we should soon be learning the effective dates of the Class Study changes. The Training and Development classification is going to be a large undertaking for some agencies. 

To prepare for allocation review, which is like the Reclass Review process, please gather all training related PDs, make sure they are all accurate, complete, up to date, and signed by your appointing authority now if you haven’t already. More to come ​as we get closer.


Training of the Month
​​
We review the differences between Office Specialists and Administrative Specialists and Program Analysts and Operations and Policy Analysts.

Workday HCM

Below is a list of new and updated allowances for CBA’s that have ratified and reported.  There is also an announcement in Workday titled New and Updated allowances in Workday – CBA/Policy Changes.  Please refer to the CBA for the specifics/details on the allowances. Agencies can now add/update workers allowances, as appropriate.

 

New Compensation Allowances: 

  • American Board of Professional Psychology Certification – Percent (SEIU – Effective upon ratification: 8/22/23)

  • Digital Forensics (OSPOA – Effective upon ratification: 8/18/23) 
  • Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor SEIU (SEIU – Effective upon ratification: 8/22/23) 

Pay Equity

Calculator - Change the default calculation type to 'new employee/new job' instead of 'Review in current position' as agencies are doing far more pay equity assessments for new hires, promotions, and position changes than reviews per an employee request. The calculator will be updated in the next few business days and posted to the link. We will be performing more updates in the coming weeks as a result of bargaining changes, please ensure you are using the link each time you complete a pay equity assessment.

 **Reminder – Pay Equity Office Hours will be October 10, 10:00-11:00 am. 


PEMs

DONT USE THE PEMS. We are working with agencies to resolve the any outstanding PEM's, so we will be reaching out to agencies soon. Please work with us if you have issues.  

Recruitment - DO NOT RECRUIT FOR PEMS.  Any new recruitment needs to be done in a TOMP or other active classification.

    CNC Statewide Meeting Agenda 1/31/24​

    Workday Reminders

    • Salary selectives:  Reminder when processing selective changes, be sure to look at workers and positions (including vacant positions).
    • CMP | Workers with Mismatched Job Profile/Grade Profile - please continue to work this report.  Workers on this list may need their job profile or grade profile corrected.  Note: workers impacted by of salary selectives may appear on this report.

     

    Equal Pay Analysis

    Equal Pay Analysis Update - 01.2024

    Please note that the truncations are effective April 1, 2024, and the executive branch Equal Pay Analysis is effective June 1, 2024. This means that we will implement the truncations as bargained as least cost implementation, then the executive branch Equal Pay analysis will be performed according to the new truncated salary ranges. Generally speaking, this will likely have a ripple effect on most people in the identified classification.

    This information has been shared with your HR Director at the January meeting.

     

    Position Number Changes

    When agencies have position number changes after a classification review, typically on an establishment, the agency needs to make the request to the CNC inbox.  With this request they need to include that it is a previously approved position and provide an updated position description, analysis, and ORG chart that all align with the new position numbers.  DAS CNC will re-issue the memo with the updated position numbers.  It is important to resubmit the original package with the new positions numbers that align so that both the agency and DAS CHRO has a correct request that align with the established position numbers.  DAS CNC does not ask the agency to recreate any of the analysis or position description, just to update the documentation to align with the newly established position numbers. 

     

    Customer Service Survey

    We are working on a quarterly customer service survey that will be deployed in Q2 of 2024. We anticipate doing a random distribution of the survey based on those who have interacted with the DAS CnC team over the first quarter of 2024. The customer service survey is based on DAS's customer service Key Performance Measure (KPM), which includes timeliness, accuracy, helpfulness, knowledge/expertise, availability of information, and overall satisfaction.

    We are very interested in receiving the feedback and constructive suggestions about how we can improve. Please keep your eyes out for it.

     

    Effective Date

    We recently asked agencies whether the “Effective Date" field on the PD template (Section 1c.) was useful. As a follow-up, we will no longer be requiring that field to be filled in on the PD. We will get the PD template updated soon.

     

    Pay Equity Reminders

    • With all the salary selectives that workday is processing, we are updating the pay equity calculator more often. Please ensure you are going to the website link to access the latest version of the calculator.
    • Additionally, with the salary selective updates workday is processing, please prioritize updating the affected employees. Delay in processing can affect an employee's compensation (over/under payments), but also impacts the Equal Pay Project and Budget. 
    • During the Equal Pay Analysis, we will need to continue the ongoing requested pay equity reviews. CBA and policy outline processes and timelines for these reviews, including the effective date. Please continue to process these as you normally would and send any recommended for an increase to CNC team for approval.

     

    Class Study Updates

    The class study website has been updated with class study allocation information. Agencies impacted by last biennium's class studies should visit that web site and begin gearing up for their allocations. The first step is to gather all related PDs and make sure they are updated and signed by their appointing authority. Second step is to update all org charts with the correct positions structure and information.

    • The Engineering class study is complete and is expected to go to bargaining next week. The changes will impact ODOT and ODFW.  Allocations will be expected from them.
    • The Social Services Specialist Series study is nearly complete. They are developing their CET presentation and scheduled to deliver it at the end of February.
    • The Wildland Fire Dispatcher is also nearly complete, and they are developing their CET presentation. It is not yet scheduled for delivery.
    • The Internal Auditor management series is being finalized. More to come on that.
    • The new class studies bargained for this biennium are in partly in preparation, partly holding (see attached). Deadlines for those studies are in 2025.

     Table.png

    Office Hours

    These are opportunities to ask specific questions you might have related to pay equity or classification issues or challenges you're having or discuss specific topics that you might need clarification on or don't fully understand.  These are not formal training sessions and there will not be a formal training provided, but advice, guidance, assistance, and help is provided by the CNC team.

    • Pay Equity Office Hours – February 13, 10:00 am – 11:00 am
    • Classification Office Hours – February 20, 10:00 am – 11:00 am

     

    Compensation Changes Document

    We are compiling a summary document of all compensation changes that we hope to have out to the HR community the week of February 5. This summary document will list, by representation, selectives, truncations, and other changes to differentials (allowances). We are waiting to include the information from this month's report to Ways and Means so the list has all the information to date.

     

    Delegated Authority

    The Delegated Authority program is available for HR Directors. On the CnC website, there is an application form requesting delegated authority to approve classifications. Once received by the CnC, the applications are evaluated, and recommendations are provided to Jessica Knieling for her consideration and approval. Currently, delegated authority is available for the 23-25 biennium. The CHRO conducts audits of submissions every six months to ensure documentation is complete. Since the program's inception, 880 position classifications have been approved at the agency level.


    Budget Build - Positions

    We know that you are and will continue to be busy with assisting your agency leadership with classification analyses for 2025-27 budget build in the coming months.

    As a reminder, in late 2022 we published the CnC Notification Form to our website. This form should be completed and submitted to DAS CnC when agencies are submitting classification reviews of more than 15 positions at one time. We request that agencies fill this out appropriately two weeks in advance of when you anticipate submitting your reviews to us, so we can plan our resources accordingly.

    Again, we know you'll be working with your agency's leadership and program managers to develop new position descriptions and org. charts in support of your agency's Policy Option Package (POP) requests over the next several months. To help support you in these efforts, we've provided a high-level slide deck and will be reviewing questions you can ask and where to look for information to help you (and your program managers) write a good PD, which in turn, will assist you in writing a thorough analysis for CnC review.

    Esoteric Tips for the Classification Expert​


    2/28/2024 – Meeting Recap

    Please review the meeting content.  You will find the respective slides and attachments pertaining to each topic below.

     

    Salary Selectives

    Just a reminder – Workday has made many updates to the compensation structures due to salary selectives. Please continue to prioritize making appropriate updates to affected employees. Delays in processing can affect an employee's compensation (over/under payments) and impacts the Equal Pay Project and Budget projections.

     

    Minimum Qualifications

    We are reviewing MQs to make some edits and clean up some language. This is to be in alignment with policy and to keep up with the changing recruitment technology. What we want to be sure to avoid is any roadblocks to the application process. We will be removing the language regarding the requirement for transcripts. You may still request them, just not during the application process. We are also removing language such as “course work may be substituted for sixth months of experience. See the very cryptic chart below. Maybe there is a chart maybe there isn't. We're replacing that with the more flexible and inclusive, “An equivalent combination of relevant education, training, and experience."

     

    Training of the Month

     

    Position Description and Analysis Writing Guide – Part 1

     ​

    We review a position description, examine the relevant classifications, and then review the analysis written to establish the position.  This training includes tips and guidance for reviewing the position description, selecting the relevant classifications, and writing the analysis.​

    Workday HCM Reminders

     

    Workday HCM Reminders

     

    April 1 Truncations

     

    April 1 is quickly approaching, and we have hundreds of classifications that are being truncated. Truncation, as most of you know, is removing a certain number of steps from the bottom of the salary range, which makes the entry step higher and condenses the salary range.  

     

    We are working to prepare for these truncations, including updating the pay equity calculator. On April 1, the pay equity calculator will be updated and posted to the link, and it will include the truncated ranges.  

     

    Prior to April 1, if you are processing a pay equity, you will want to confirm if the classification is affected by the truncation and what that means for the candidate or employee. Please continue to use the pay equity calculator to determine step placement.  

     

    • If your candidate is being offered a position and will start on or before March 31 – you may want to include language in the offer letter that explains their movement effective April 1, due to the range truncation.  
    • If your candidate is being offered a position and will start on or after April 1 – if the calculator places the candidate on a step in the salary range that is not affected by truncation, then that step is appropriate. If the calculator places the candidate on a step in the salary range that is impacted by the truncation, please adjust accordingly. For example: if the calculator results in step 1, and the bottom two steps are being removed, then the salary placement is step 3 (as it will be the new first step in the salary range).  
    • If you have an unscheduled pay equity request – if the classification is impacted by the range truncation, depending on the request date, if the calculator places the employee on a step in the salary range that is not affected by truncation, then that step is appropriate. If the calculator places the employee on a step in the salary range that is impacted by the truncation, please adjust accordingly. For example: if the calculator results in step 1, and the bottom two steps are being removed, then the salary placement is step 3 (as it will be the new first step in the salary range). After a final decision is made (and DAS has approved, if necessary) you will want to ensure the employee understands how their salary will be adjusted.  

     

    Please ensure to pass along this information to your recruiters or other HR staff who this may impact.  

     

    New Pay Equity website is LIVE! This provides a general webpage and additional pages dedicated to the Equal Pay Analysis and ongoing Pay Equity Assessments. For the Pay Equity Assessments page, we've added a contact list to provide employees a contact at their agency for unscheduled pay equity requests and questions. If your agency is not listed, we do not have a contact for your agency. Please email us - chro.payequity@das.oregon.gov 

     

    Class Study Updates

     

    The new Internal Auditor Chief Executive 1-3 class series is complete. It needs to be reported to the Legislature in an eBoard letter before we can implement. Agencies that have positions they believe will reallocate to this new series should prepare for allocation. (contact Audrey for further questions/assistance).

     

    The Human Services Specialist class study begins today.

     

    The wildland Fire Dispatcher class study is wrapping up and will be reported to LRU next week. Bargaining will take place after that.

     

    The Social Services Specialist class study is also wrapping up and will be reported to LRU next month for bargaining.

     

    The Business Analyst class study is currently underway. This class new class is expected to take the place of the OPA series for work related to business and data analysis specifically. The OPA will not be going away as a result of this study.

     

    DOC's mailroom specialist class study will begin soon.

     

    Case Management

     

    DAS CNC is transitioning away from receiving classification reviews (including reclassifications, position establishments, FLSA changes, etc.) by email and moving toward receiving agency requests through Case Management in Workday. We are making this transition for a variety of reasons - among them, greater transparency with you so you can easily see the status of the requests you have submitted to us.

     

    We know that many of you are currently using Case Management within your agencies and are familiar with the flow and exchange of information. If you are set up in Case Management, please feel free to begin to use Case Management to submit requests to us immediately.

     

    We also are aware that some agencies are not using Case Management and will need some time to learn the process and establish case solving teams to submit requests to us via Case Management. If you are not currently set up to submit requests to us via Case Management, you can continue to submit agency requests to us via our chro.cnc@das.oregon.gov email address until the end of the year.

     

    However, as of January 1, 2025, all classification review requests submitted via email will not be processed. Instead, they will be declined and referred to the Workday Case Management system. This deadline gives agencies a nine-month glide path, allowing time to plan for and transition to Case Management.

     

    **Clarification: for now, all Equal Pay Analysis requests for unscheduled salary adjustments, appeals, etc. will continue to be managed through our chro.payequity@das.oregon.gov email.**

     

    Attached is the presentation shared at the Statewide Class/Comp meeting yesterday for your information. An important part of this process is found on slide 10, which outlines the information we need including:

     

    • Title Line Naming Convention:
      • “Action Item Type, (WD/PPDB ID), (Incumbent or Classification if Vacant)"
    • Detailed Message Text Field Template:
      • Action Item Type
      • Agency
      • Requested by/ Supervisor
      • Workday Position Number (“TBD" if unavailable)
      • PPDB Position Number (“TBD" if unavailable)
      • Current Classification
      • Proposed Classification
      • Case to be shared with

     

    Thank you for your attention to this matter and your cooperation in making this transition smooth and successful. Do not hesitate to reach out to us at chro.cnc@das.oregon.gov for assistance in this transition.

    Equal Pay Project

    2024 Equal Pay Methodology Presentation​ 


    Timeline
    For employees as of 1/10/2024 who haven’t changed jobs:

    • ​Agency validation of time in position and relevant experience complete – thank you for all of your work getting this done!

    • HR departments will receive lists of those employees receiving an increase as a result of the analysis in mid-July

    • All employees will receive a notice of their results from the Equal Pay Analysis in mid-July. Notices will contain:

      • Experience, education, and time in position used in the analysis

      • Appeal rights and process (we will again be using the process in Workday for appeal submissions) 


    DAS will pull a second set of data to reflect new employees or those employees who have changed jobs from 1/11/2024 through 5/31/2024.

    • We will do an iterative process, reflected above, to ensure that all employees are examined using the new methodology in the Equal Pay Analysis


    Equal Pay Calculator

    • ​Will be posted on the DAS Class/Comp website

    • Agencies will use calculator and outcome of calculator for all salary placements. Agencies will no longer be able to make exceptions to the step placement, unless CBA or policy is more beneficial to the employee (e.g., upon promotion). Updated Pay Practices policy, effective 6/1/24, will be sent by end of the week.

    • If agencies have made job offers to employees who begin work June 1 or later, please use the new calculator and re-run the pay equity assessment. If the salary step increases, please re-issue job offer letter.

    • The May 30, 2024, demonstration and training will be recorded and uploaded into Workday Learning.


    CHRO Updates

    Class Study Updates

    The Internal Auditor Chief Executive series is in implementation, and agencies are submitting their allocation reviews. For those still working on their allocations, a plug on org charts: It’s important that agencies have org charts that illustrate the hierarchy and workflow, rather than the administrative oversight. This is especially important for the IACE series. The distinguishing feature of this series is the reporting structure. If the org chart shows the administrative oversight rather than the actual reporting and hierarchical structure, there will be kick back, which means delays and more work for you, so please be sure to provide an accurate org chart.​

    The Engineering series, Social Service Specialist series, and the Wildland Fire Dispatcher study results are in bargaining as we speak. More to come on that when we have LOAs. Agencies that use these classes, please begin thinking about preparing for implementation.  Visit the class study web page for information and guidance. 

    Department of Administrative Ser​vices : Classification Studies : Chief Human Resources Office : State of Oregon

    The Human Services Specialist series is in phase one and is coming along nicely. We hope to have the revised specs completed soon. We do anticipate changes to the series structure. For agencies that use it and have not been involved, please contact Audrey Powell for information.​

    The new Business Analyst class study is expected to begin in July.

    Other studies we are obligated to work on, pursuant to LOA, this biennium are:

    • The DEI series

    • Firefighter

    • Lieutenant

    • Captain

    • Corrections Food Service Worker

    • Mailroom Specialist - OR State Pen (DOC)


    FLSA Threshold Changes

    Effective July 1, 2024, the salary threshold for FLSA status is increasing to $3,657/month. There is a new FLSA worksheet available on the CnC website.

    Effective 7/1/2024 through 12/31/2024 – FLSA Designation Worksheet

    There will be another increase in the salary threshold effective January 1, 2025. Closer to December 2024, a new FLSA worksheet will be made available to reflect that increase. Announcements will be made later in the year. 

    There is a new Workday report designed to help agencies audit filled positions for FLSA and salary thresholds. HCM | FLSA Validation Report (2024-2025)

    If positions are evaluated and determined to move from exempt to non-exempt, complete an FLSA analysis and submit to CHRO CnC. An approval memo will be issued. 

    When making changes to an employee’s profile, be sure to change the job profile to reflect the non-exempt version of the classification (EX: Operations & Policy Analyst 3 – Exempt to Operations & Policy Analyst 3 – Non-exempt).

    FLSA Validation Report



    Workday Case Management

    As a reminder, and with the exception of Equal Pay appeals and unscheduled salary adjustments, as of January 1, 2025, all requests to DAS CnC must be submitted through Workday Case Management.

    This transition was announced in March, via the HR ListServs and discussed at the Statewide Class/Comp meeting; we will continue to provide reminders.

    Case Management Update


    Unclassified (executive) Service

    In collaboration with the Department of Justice, the CHRO CnC developed a guidance document to assist agencies with evaluating positions for unclassified service (aka executive service). There are step-by-step procedures, including reviewing agency enabling statutes and applying the State Personnel Relations Law (ORS 240.205).

    Biannual Delegated Authority Audit Time

    Every six months, the CHRO CnC team conducts audits of delegated authority approvals to help ensure the integrity of the classification plan. It is time to once again conduct this audit. We are asking agency HR directors to submit any classification approvals made over the last six months to us before June 30, 2024. These classification approvals can be submitted through Workday Case Management or to the CnC Inbox and must contain the following documents: Position Description, Organizational Chart, Analysis, and Approval Memo from the HR Director. 

    If an agency HR Director is interested in obtaining delegated authority to approve certain classifications, please visit this website: Position Establishment Delegated Authority.docx and submit to the CnC Inbox for processing. 

    If you have any questions about delegated authority, please contact Anna Chamberland.
