The Office of Human Resources maintains job descriptions for all clerical/support and administrative/professional positions defined in ETSU's Compensation Plan Guidelines. Accurate job descriptions are important to both employees and supervisors. The availability and use of job descriptions may include:
Job descriptions should be updated on a regular basis to avoid inaccuracies. Supervisors should review the accuracy of job descriptions during an employee's annual employee performance appraisal, before the advertisement of a vacant position, and whenever departmental changes affect the distribution of office duties and responsibilities. Revisions to written job descriptions must be reviewed with the current incumbent to assure the employee's acknowledgement and understanding of the changes and current job expectations.
To update job descriptions for both clerical/support and administrative/professional positions, supervisors should complete a new position classification questionnaire (available on the Forms page) and/or contact the Office of Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
A change in a position's duties and responsibilities does not necessarily dictate a change in the position's pay level. Often the same skills, knowledge, and level of responsibility exist. However, if you feel a job audit is warranted, please see ETSU's Compensation Plan Guidelines for the procedures used to request a job audit.
