Subject: Classified Personnel

Date Adopted: January 1, 1991, Revised August 28, 2013

Appropriation acts set the grade for specific positions and the number of such positions that are available to the College. A salary schedule, approved by the General Assembly, determines the entry level of all classified positions and the maximum salary level of a specific job title.

Act 410 of 1977 provides for the administration of the Classified Personnel System of Higher Education in Arkansas. The method of classification, pay grades, compensation, and related policies are provided by the General Assembly and administered by the Office of Personnel Management. A classified employee is one who meets the qualifications set forth for a position compensated through the Uniform Classification and Pay Plan provided by the General Assembly.

Classified personnel of the College have the rights and privileges and are subject to the personnel policies and regulations established by the General Assembly for all classified employees in the institutions of higher education as administered by the Office of Personnel Management. Classified personnel are also subject to personnel policies and regulations established by the College.

Classified personnel are employed for specific jobs and are expected to work their assigned hours and in the assigned location of their work. Employees are expected to carry out their responsibilities in a professional manner. The Board of Trustees is committed to providing safe and pleasant working conditions so that all employees may develop to their maximum potential. Classified employees work with a specific supervisor and should discuss all matters relating to employment with their respective supervisors.
