Handbook for Preparing Job Classifications.
Thomas, John C.
To assist local governments in their responsibility for eliminating and preventing discrimination in employment based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin as specified by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972, the handbook provides guidelines for analyzing jobs and preparing job classifications (defining; listing duties performed; listing related knowledges, abilities, skills; employment qualifications). The main portion of the document (110 pages) consists of sample job classifications for approximately 50 positions commonly found in municipal government. Each classification description contains the four parts of job classification mentioned above. All or most of the major and typical duties of a city's class should be expected to be contained in the sample class. To further aid in the construction of a municipal classification plan, a comprehensive outline of common clerical job duties has been included. An outline of job responsibility and difficulty and explanation of types of supervision is also included. (AG)
