Checklist to appoint to a higher classification role
This checklist is designed to assist agencies when reviewing a request from a public service employee to be permanently appointed to the higher classification role they are performing. Section 149C of the Public Service Act 2008 (the PS Act) and Appointing a public service employee to a higher classification level (Directive 13/20) sets out the conditions for conversion. After one year, and each successive year performing higher duties, the employee may request a review once a year or if the position becomes substantively vacant.
The conversion review elements are:
- eligible on merit principle
- same agency as appointed or employed
- continuous period of at least one year
- not a casual employee, SO, SES or CE
- genuine operational requirements
- previous review decisions.
