SUBJECT: Change in State Classification Plan

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

A title consolidation for the Manager and Manager, Employment
Services title series in the Department of Labor was approved by
the Merit System Board on August 8, 2000. The requested
consolidated replacement title series, Manager, Workforce New
Jersey was established effective July 29, 2000.

As a result of the implementation of the Workforce Investment Act
of 1998 and the mandate and goals of Governor Whitman's Executive
Order 36, the appointing authority has restructured its service
delivery system to provide one-stop career center approach to the
unemployed and under-employed. The replacement Manager titles
will be located in the Regional Adjudication Centers, Re-
employment Call-In Centers, One-Stop Re-employment Centers and
two Interstate Offices. A significant aspect of this initiative
is the integration of unemployment and employment and training
functions; thus manager roles are evolving as generalists in the
seamless One Stop Service system.

This reorganization has resulted in the redesign of the Manager
title series utilized by the Department of Labor. Subsequently,
Managers have undertaken comprehensive training for months on the
new duties and responsibilities necessary for successful
transition to the new office structure.

The transition process has progressed to the stage where it is
now appropriate to request the elimination of the consolidated
Manager 1 and 2 and Manager 1 and 2, Employment Services titles.
Subsequent to this action, the 3 levels of both title series will
no longer be germane. Therefore, in the interest of expediency we
are recommending those titles be made archaic as was stipulated
by the Board approval on July 28, 2000. The recommended effective
date of of both actions is July 29, 2000.

DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

The Department of Transportation requests a one-range salary
increase for the title of Regional Electric Supervisor.

Changes over the past several years have impacted the know-how
factors of this function. The education and experience
requirements were previously increased to address the
technological advances impacting electrical devices used for
traffic control, direction and highway illumination for which the
department is responsible. Incumbents have assumed greater
managerial responsibilities, formerly exercised by higher level
managers, whose titles have now been eliminated.

We support this one-range increase.
