Career Tracks to Launch Oct. 1, Reconsiderations Due Sept. 30

September 14, 2012

Career Tracks, UC Merced’s new classification and compensation system for non-represented staff, will launch Oct. 1, and the deadline to submit a reconsideration request to Human Resources is Sunday, Sept. 30.

Career Tracks classifies and groups positions into job families that more accurately reflect an employee’s job duties. The process of moving jobs from the current classification into Career Tracks — called mapping — was completed earlier this year. All newly mapped employees should have received an information packet that included their new job title code last month.

Reconsideration is a review of the employee’s original mapping. The formal reconsideration process requires the involvement and approval of the employee’s supervisor or manager. However, Human Resources will consider a reconsideration request directly from an employee under exceptional circumstances. Employees who want to request a reconsideration outside of the formal process should contact HR directly and provide a brief explanation of the special circumstances.

Reconsideration requests should include an updated job description, created in Job Builder, an updated organization chart and completed and signed Career Tracks Reconsideration Request form.  

Questions can be directed to comp@ucmerced.edu or call Jim Kessler at 228-2935.
