To request the addition of a position classification to the continuous recruitment list, the respective division or facility human resources office shall submit a written justification to Talent Management Section. The following factors for each position classification shall be addressed in the justification:
    1. Turnover

    2. Number of positions in the class

    3. Geographic location

    4. Scarcity of skills

    5. Safety, health, or quality of care for clients
  3. Division of Human Resources approved requests shall be forwarded to the State Human Resources Director who will submit proposed requests to the State Human Resources Commission for consideration, if warranted. The State Human Resources Director may grant provisional approval allowing the department to post the position under the continuous recruitment policy on a temporary basis, pending final approval from the State Human Resources Commission.
