Rules for Classified Civil Service updated to align with HR policy revisions

Some of Ohio State’s Rules for Classified Civil Service (CCS) have been updated to align with the university’s implementation of Workday and recent HR policy revisions and will go into effect on Sunday, Dec. 20, 2020.

Over the past year, multiple HR policies went through the official revision process and a university-wide feedback period. A summary of the rule changes is available online, and a full list of the revised policies is on the Office of University Compliance and Integrity’s University Policies website.

These policy revisions are part of the HR business transformation process and the university’s Enterprise Project to improve the employee experience and better align business practices.

The changes to the CCS rules align the language of the revised policies and rules, and update terminology related to Workday. The updated CCS rules were approved by the Ohio State Board of Trustees on November 19, 2020.

Policy effective dates, which are late December 2020 and early January 2021, are coordinated with the implementation of Workday, a cloud-based application that will serve as a single system for the university’s finance, HR and payroll information.
