Frequently Asked Questions Classification

What happens after OPM makes a classification or job grading appeal decision?

Once we make a decision, we will notify both you and your agency in writing.  The decision will state our determination of the correct pay system, title, occupational series, and grade of the position or job, as well as the effective date of any required action.  You should be aware that the decision may not be favorable to you (for example, it could result in a lower grade, or a change to a series and/or pay system unwanted by you).  Regardless of our decision, your agency still keeps full control over the assignment of duties to a position or job and who performs those duties.  Our decision is controlling with regard to the classification of your position or the grading of your job.  Any personnel action affecting you because of our classification or job grading appeal decision will be determined and taken by your agency.
