G-32-17.1.3 Classified and Non-Represented/Regular Placement

As a matter of practice, all vacant classified and non-represented/regular positions are advertised between the minimum and equity point of the appropriate salary level for the position. The initial salary placement for a successful candidate will be determined by the Chief Human Resources Officer in consultation with the hiring supervisor and will be based on factors adopted by COCC per the Oregon Equal Pay Act. The equity point for a position is based on the comparability of the position with existing COCC positions and current employees in those positions. Primary comparable factors include education, experience, and seniority in a position. Other factors may be considered for non-comparable positions, such as the scope and impact of a position, but these are not guaranteed if a position is comparable. For non-comparable positions, internal equity is also considered. Position funding is a component of every salary placement.
