INTRODUCTION TO THE WILLIS JOB EVALUATION SYSTEM
Since the early 1980s, the community colleges have used a point-factor job evaluation system for determining the classification of non-teaching and administrative positions in the system. The job evaluation tool was developed by Normal D. Willis and Associates, of Seattle, Washington, and hence is called the Willis job evaluation system. Read more about the Willis Process here.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
Each January, the 4Cs announces the dates for the Willis process and includes a Change of Duties Worksheet. In 2016, the worksheet was distributed on January 14 and is due back by February 11.
To make a claim, use the worksheet. For each of the six criteria, please either state, “no change,” or list the duties added. It is not necessary to show a change in every area if none has taken place. What is important is to focus on the most demanding aspects of your job. The goal of the worksheet is to determine whether enough change has taken place that the union should initiate a formal claim on your behalf. A much more detailed and lengthy job content questionnaire will then need to be filled out for further review.
Submit the worksheet to the 4Cs office, 907 Wethersfield Avenue, Hartford, CT 06114 by Thursday, February 11, 2016. Any questions call the office at 860.296.5172 or 1.800.822.2363. Our fax number is 860.296.6219. You could also e-mail the worksheet to firstname.lastname@example.org.
