What is the outcome of signing the job descriptions?
For managers, signing individual job descriptions based on generic job descriptions confirms that the selected description accurately describes the work assigned to and performed in the position.
For LPs, their signature confirms the employee has seen the job description and has been provided an opportunity to comment.
Signing any other form of acknowledgement is just that, an acknowledgement. You are not waiving your right to grieve.
Signed job descriptions are then sent to Human Resources and a classification decision is issued once the new standard and group definition are in effect. An LP preserves his or her right to grieve even after he/she may file a work content grievance that will be administered in accordance with normal grievance procedure. Incumbents will be informed of their right to grieve the classification of their positions.
