Citywide Non-Rep Class Comp Study

**Update April 2018**

As promised last December, BHR has been very busy meeting with employees and leadership teams gathering feedback regarding the suspended Non-Rep Class/Comp Study. Using all the information you provided throughout the Study process, the Study has been re-imagined. We are excited to announce a new beginning of the Non-Rep Study and will be sharing all the details in the coming weeks.

We are directly addressing the concerns you voiced last year. One of the first and biggest concerns we are responding to is the issue of compensation. The Class/Comp team has been conducting a compensation survey for all non-rep classes in the new structure. When this part of the Study is complete, you will know where your classification will be paid in the new structure. You can expect to receive updates and communications through a variety of media frequently. 


City Council approved a citywide initiative to evaluate and update the City’s classification and compensation system and structure for all employees in non-represented (non-rep) classifications.

This page serves as a resource of information and materials for this comprehensive Non-Rep Classification and Compensation Study (Study). For questions related to the Study, please contact any member of the Classification and Compensation team or your bureau's HR Business Partner.

For more details on this non-rep Study, including information regarding the decision to end the Study, please refer to the links below.
