A classification appeal is a written request by an employee for their agency, department, or OPM to review his/her classification. Issues which may be appealed include the pay system, occupational series, grade, and official position title. Employees considering the appeal process should review the applicable information at http://www.opm.gov/classapp. A job grading appeal covers the same issues except pay system. Federal wage system employees who believe their job is properly placed in the General Schedule must follow classification rather than job grading appeal procedures.
Employees should discuss any discrepancies with their supervisor before requesting a review at higher organizational levels. Remember, while some appeals may result in a position being classified to a higher grade, others may result in grades remaining the same, being classified or graded lower, or being placed in a different pay system.
