The Job Classification Plan as an Instrument for Affirmative Action.
Roberts, Russell Arthur
The purpose of the project was to determine if a pre-existing job classification plan, arbitrarily constructed, can serve as an effective instrument for affirmative action in personnel selection and promotion. In order to meet this objective, the job classification plan of the Altadena (California) Library District was examined. A theoretical discussion of the principles, methodology, and techniques of job analysis as it applies to job classification is presented. Important in the process is determining what the worker does and the level and difficulty of the work which determines the job requirements. An overview of the principles and techniques of position-classification are presented as a guide for formulating a job classification plan. The Altadena Library District represents a typical case of how job classifications are developed in smaller public agencies that have limited funds and professional manpower to analyze the organization's positions. A critical analysis of the library's job classification plan concluded it was not a desirably effective instrument. Several specific and general recommendations are presented. A bibliography and glossary are included. Appended materials contain much of the data used in the position-classification performed on the Altadena Library District. (Author/EC)
