Classification/Exclusion Requests

We are currently in a period of fiscal restraint. All staffing and classification requests must be approved by the deputy minister before being submitted to the BC Public Service Agency for processing.

Classification Requests

  • Deputy minister approval is required for classification requests for all positions, whether vacant or encumbered, management or bargaining unit
  • When submitting a classification review, you must advise if the request has the deputy minister’s approval to proceed

Exclusion Requests

  • All exclusion requests are forwarded to the union for review/approval as per the exclusion process
  • A new excluded position can be filled if you have received approval from your deputy minister, and the union has agreed to the exclusion
  • Questions regarding exclusion requests can be submitted through AskMyHR
