The commissioner shall make available for public inspection, and may amend, written class specifications for any class in the classification plan. Each class specification must include the class title, a general description of the scope of the work, and the knowledge, skills, and abilities an incumbent should possess in order to perform duties of the class. If a classification consists of only one position, the commissioner may use the position description as the class specification.
Definitions used in class specifications are descriptive and not restrictive, indicating the kinds of positions allocated to classes, and are not to be construed as limiting in any way or modifying the power of the appointing authority to appoint, direct, and control the work of employees. Using a particular expression or illustration of duties does not exclude other duties not mentioned that are of a similar kind or quality.
