HR - Job Code Changes


Job Code changes may occur for a variety of reasons including promotion, educational attainment, reallocation or progression within a Job Code series. In order to change Job Codes and pay rates, the changes must begin with Position and then flow to Job.

  • If a Position has multiple incumbents, all Jobs associated with that Position will change. If this is not the desired case, the incumbent(s) to change should be transferred to a different Position.
  • Changes to Position will flow to Job. Review the Job Data to confirm.
  • To add a rate change a sequenced row must be added on Job.
  • If the change needs to be made to a historical row on job, contact your Affinity Group.
  • To find position number from job, see HR - Search For an Employee's Position Number From Job Info
