What constitutes a classification matter?
Classification matters occur often when a federal employee seeks a change in the official classification of their position within a federal agency because the employee believes the duties he or she is performing warrant a higher pay grade or different series. These classification matters may be conducted via desk audit, where a classification specialist is called in to investigate and make an appropriate determination as to the correct classification of a job. Classification matters may require a great deal of detail and organizational acumen in order to find success, and anyone engaging in a classification matter should strongly consider enlisting the services of a skilled attorney before proceeding further.
Classification matters may be resolved through your agency or appealed to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).
