It is the policy of Sonoma State University when dealing with changes in positions that could affect compensation or classification to use the following guidelines:

  1. The University is committed to the principle of equal pay for equal work.
  2. The University shall follow collective bargaining agreement articles on classification 5, reclassifications, and pay actions.
  3. The classification and qualifications standards, as published by the Chancellor's Office of the California State University, are the guidelines used for determination of classification level.
  4. Prior to altering an employee's assignments or responsibilities to the extent that the classification level may be changed, the department must consult with the Office of Human Services - Human Resources to assess potential classification change and cost impact.
  5. The effective date for salary changes as a result of reclassification actions will be the date the assignment or responsibilities were changed.
  6. For MPP (Management Personnel Plan) classification actions, the department head proposing the change will meet with Human Resources staff who will conduct a review and make an advisory recommendation to the President regarding the salary for the MPP position change.
