The director may reclassify or reallocate positions on the same basis.

230.09(2)(am)

(am) The director shall maintain and improve the classification plan to meet the needs of the service, using methods and techniques which may include personnel management surveys, individual position reviews, occupational group classification surveys, or other appropriate methods of position review.

The director shall establish, modify or abolish classifications as the needs of the service require.

230.09(2)(b)

(b) To accommodate and effectuate the continuing changes in the classification plan as a result of the classification survey program and otherwise, the director shall, upon initial establishment of a classification, assign that class to the appropriate pay rate or range, and may, upon subsequent review, reassign classes to different pay rates or ranges. The director shall assign each class to a pay range according to the skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions required for the class, without regard to whether the class is occupied primarily by members of a certain gender or racial group. The director shall give notice to appointing authorities to permit them to make recommendations before final action is taken on any such assignment or reassignment of classes.

230.09(2)(c)

(c) If anticipated changes in program or organization will significantly affect the assignment of duties or responsibilities to positions, the appointing authority shall, whenever practicable, confer with the director within a reasonable time prior to the reorganization or changes in program to formulate methods to fill positions which are newly established or modified to the extent that reclassification of the position is appropriate. In all cases, appointing authorities shall give written notice to the director and employee of changes in the assignment of duties or responsibilities to a position when the changes in assignment may affect the classification of the position.

230.09(2)(d)

230.09(2)(e)

(e) If an appointing authority appoints a person to a position at an approved grade level lower than that recognized for the position, the person in the position may be regraded, only upon recommendation of the appointing authority, subject to the statutes, classification plan and rules prescribed under this subchapter.

230.09(2)(f)

(f) If a position in the classified service is reclassified or reallocated, or if a position is allocated from the unclassified service to a classification in the classified service having a lower pay rate or pay range maximum than the incumbent's current basic pay rate, the pay rate of the incumbent shall be adjusted under the compensation plan under s. 230.12 or the rules prescribed under this section.

230.09(2)(g)

(g) When filling a new or vacant position, if the director determines that the classification for a position is different than that provided for by the legislature as established by law or in budget determinations, or as authorized by the joint committee on finance under s. 13.10, or as specified by the governor creating positions under s. 16.505 (1) (c) or (2), the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Board creating positions under s. 16.505 (2n) or the board of regents of the University of Wisconsin System creating positions under s. 16.505 (2m), or is different than that of the previous incumbent, the director shall notify the administrator and the secretary of administration. The administrator shall withhold action on the selection and certification process for filling the position. The secretary of administration shall review the position to determine that sufficient funds exist for the position and that the duties and responsibilities of the proposed position reflect the intent of the legislature as established by law or in budget determinations, the intent of the joint committee on finance acting under s. 13.10, the intent of the governor creating positions under s. 16.505 (1) (c) or (2), the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics Board creating positions under s. 16.505 (2n) or the intent of the board of regents of the University of Wisconsin System creating positions under s. 16.505 (2m).
