Employee Class Updates

Message to department representatives

This message has been approved by Shelley Lopez, Program Director, Communications/Special Projects, for distribution to all Department Representatives.

To easily identify employees by their appropriate Fringe Benefits Pool category, HR has added several new employee classes. Instead of the employee class “OPS” being assigned to most OPS hires, specific job codes will map to the newly created employee classes: Graduate Assistants, Students, and Federal Work Study. The historical employee class categories of OPS, Visiting in lieu of Adjunct, Post Docs, and Adjunct will continue to be used for any OPS not otherwise classified as a Graduate Assistant, Student, or Federal Work Study.

Additionally, we have added two new salaried employee classes that may be used in consultation with Employment & Recruitment Services before the job offer is submitted.

  • Athletic Coach: Reserved for job codes 9467, 9468, 9469, and 9470.
  • Conditional: Utilized for A&P new hires who must obtain specific licensure or certifications within an allotted time frame post-hire.

Current employees will automatically be updated in the OMNI-HR system on June 27, 2024, effective June 21, 2024. No department action will be required. When creating job offers beginning June 27 in OMNI-HR, graduate assistants, students, and federal work study students will automatically map to their new employee classes. Users will continue to choose the applicable employee class for salaried hires. HR will monitor and update any “in process” or future-dated actions not captured with the mass update.
