To request that a position be reclassified, a new job description must accompany the request and be submitted to the Director of Human Resources. The Director of Human Resources will make a recommendation to the Vice President for Finance and Business Affairs who will make a final decision.
 
If the position is currently filled and the job duties have increased resulting in the position being reclassified to a higher grade, the promotional procedures will apply in terms of pay. If the position is filled and the employee at the instigation of the College, assumes lesser or fewer responsibilities, the College will not decrease the compensation immediately, but will accomplish this over time by making no compensation increases until the appropriate level of compensation is reached. Exceptions to this include when a person is moved from 12-month employment to 10 months per year; the time reduction will be made immediately upon appointment.

Promotions and Transfers

"Promotion" is the upgrading of an employee to a position with a higher minimum starting salary than the former position and with greater responsibility and challenge. An employee may be promoted either within the same department or through moving to another department. Rhodes encourages promotion from within where it is determined to be in the best interest of the College to do so.

"Transfer" is a reassignment to a position having the same or a lower minimum salary as the employee′s present position.

Individuals may apply for a promotion or transfer after at least one (1) year of continuous service in their current position provided he/she has not received any disciplinary action in the previous 12-month period. The employee must notify their immediate supervisor if selected to progress in the selection process.

Job opportunities are posted in the Human Resources Office. Those who find a position of interest for which they are qualified should submit an internal application (found online at

http://www.rhodes.edu/hr/16721.asp

to the Director of Human resources for approval. If done within the internal posting period (first five business days), their application will be addressed before looking to an external pool. Any internal applications received after five business days from the posting date will be considered within the entire candidate pool.

When an employee is officially notified of selection for the new position, at least two (2) weeks notice must be given to the present department, unless waived by the employee′s current supervisor. In the event a promotional assignment is found unsuitable by either the employee or the College, consideration will be given to allow the promoted employee to return to the former position if available. If not available, and the employee has been counseled and given sufficient time to correct any existing deficiencies, the employee may be subject to termination.

No offer of employment can be made by a hiring manager of one department of the College to an employee of another department of the College without approval of the respective Vice President/Dean.
 
The promotion will be effective at the beginning of a new pay period. The employee′s pay will be increased to the minimum of the new pay grade or 5% increase to current pay rate, whichever is greater.

Transfers. A transfer is a reassignment to a position having the same or a lower minimum salary as the employee′s present position.

Individuals may apply for a transfer after at least one (1) year of continuous service in their current position provided they have not received any disciplinary action in the previous 12-month period. The employee must notify his or her immediate supervisor of the intent to apply for a transfer.

In most cases, vacant positions are posted in the Human Resources Office. Individuals who find a position of interest for which they feel qualified and after consultation with his or her supervisor, should contact the Employment Manager in Human Resources to apply or to obtain further information.

When an employee is officially notified of selection for the new position, at least two (2) weeks notice must be given to the present department, unless waived by the employee′s current supervisor. In the event the transfer is found unsuitable by either the employee or the College, consideration will be given to allowing the transferred employee to return to the former or a comparable position held prior to his or her transfer if there is an available position. If no such return position is available, and the employee has been counseled and given sufficient time to correct any existing deficiencies, the employee may be subject to termination.

No offer of employment can be made by a representative of one department of the College to an employee of another department of the College without approval of the respective Dean.

Transfers will be effective with the beginning of a new pay period.  

In effect April 26, 2004.
Vice President for Finance and Business Affairs.
