Employee Review Period - Human Resources at Ohio State

Employee Review Period

Career Roadmap is a modern compensation and job classification model developed by Ohio State to provide transparent career paths and pay ranges for staff. Each in-scope staff position was mapped to a Career Roadmap job. The employee review period is the opportunity for staff to review where their position is mapped in the framework.

While an employee’s final mapping is at the university’s ultimate discretion, the employee review period will provide the opportunity for you to agree with the mapping or disagree and request further review.

Managers, HR business partners and leaders have all provided input to how employees are mapped to the new framework over the course of the project. This was done to ensure accuracy and consistency across the university.

What to Expect

Specific dates of the employee review timeline are still being determined. The following information is an overview of how the process will happen.

Managers will receive information about how their team’s positions are mapped, and they will share this information with direct reports.

Following that, staff will receive a notice in DocuSign at their name.# email address. At that time, staff can review this information and indicate if the function, subfunction, career band and career level have been correctly mapped.

  • If you agree, the classification will be effective when Career Roadmap is implemented.
  • If you disagree, you will be sent a position review form to complete. The form will ask you to provide additional, detailed information about your position and a suggested function, subfunction, band and level.

Final confirmation of your position mapping will be provided after all suggested changes have been reviewed.

When Career Roadmap is implemented, some employees will see a change in their overtime eligibility under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). If your position migrates from an exempt to a non-exempt classification, you will become eligible to earn overtime, and your pay will change from monthly to biweekly. You will be provided additional information about the transition from monthly to biweekly pay, if applicable.

Primary Tools

Ohio State Career Framework and Job Catalog

Career Roadmap introduces two new features to Ohio State’s job classification system – a career framework and comprehensive job catalog. The framework identifies a function, subfunction, career band and career level for all in-scope positions, providing clarity that doesn’t exist in the current state. The job catalog compiles all staff titles into one comprehensive resource. This information can help you plan a career path within the university and medical center based on available position openings and your skills, experience and performance.

Position Review Form

If you select “disagree” in the initial Career Roadmap notification letter, you will be sent a position review form in DocuSign to your name.# email address. The form asks you to provide additional, detailed information about your position and a suggested function, subfunction, band and level. Sample form coming soon.
