HEO Screening Committee

HEO Screening Committee Process and Schedule

As per the Code of Practice for Higher Education Officer (‘HEO’) series titles, the York College HEO Screening Committee is charged to review and recommend to the President appointments, salary step increases, reclassifications, reorganizations, and such other personnel actions as may be appropriate.

A request for reclassification may be initiated by an employee or the appropriate supervisory personnel by submitting the appropriate form and other relevant documents to the Chair of the HEO Screening Committee. As needed, Human Resources will undertake a preliminary review of all submissions in order to facilitate the review by the HEO Screening Committee.

The committee will meet jointly with the York College Vacancy Control Committee (‘VCC’) to ensure that personnel decisions recommended by that body are evaluated for fiscal impact. Specifically, the committee will convene on a quarterly basis to consider reclassification requests, in October and February of each academic year, and on an as needed basis to consider hires and other appointments. For the foreseeable future, merit increases will not be considered, and, all requests for reclassification involving an increase in pay that are recommended by York College leadership, must then be approved by the university Vacancy Review Board before they can be actualized.

Sabrina Johnson Chandler, Executive Director, Office of Human Resources (Chairperson)
