Classification is the process by which the duties and responsibilities of a position are analyzed and evaluated against the criteria established in classification standards. Each occupational group has a classification standard set by the employer within which a rating system and bench-mark positions are used to determine the classification of your job.

The Classification Section provides specialized advice and guidance on a variety of issues including classification, job content and work description writing; evaluation of current and proposed classification standards; implementation of generic work descriptions and group allocation issues.
