Fifty-seven (64.8 percent) of the 88 employees tested at the Parks and Wildlife Department (Department) were correctly classified.
However, of the 31 misclassified employees, auditors noted the following:
The majority (67.7 percent) of misclassified employees were in an incorrect job classification series, including five employees who were also in an incorrect occupational category.
19.4 percent of misclassified employees will require a salary increase to bring their salary up to the minimum of the new salary range.
The Department asserted that it will take appropriate action to address the 31 misclassified employees. Specifically, the Department will:
Reclassify 8 employees within the same job classification series but at a higher salary group.
Reclassify 21 employees into a different job classification series.
Change the job duties of 2 employees so that they can remain classified in their current job classification title.
As a result of the reclassifications, the Department asserted that 7 employees will receive an annual salary increase ranging from
$1,212 to $7,920 for a total annual cost of $26,763.
