Disability Insurance Specialist Series
California State Personnel Board Specification
Series established February 7, 1979
This series specification describes classes used in the Employment Development Department to perform a wide variety of technical Disability Insurance Program development and evaluation work. Positions may exist in field offices, area offices, and central office to provide regional and statewide planning, program and systems analysis, and procedure development for the State's Disability Insurance Program. Many of these jobs include responsibility for policy formulation, interpretation, and dissemination on a full range of Disability Insurance issues. Some positions exist in the field offices, area offices, and central office levels as administrative support in the areas of program budgeting, resource allocation, personnel management and staffing, training design and instruction, premises
planning, vendor contracts, and performance measures analysis.
Entrance into these classes is from the Disability Insurance Program Representative and Disability Insurance Program Supervisor classes. Some assignments may require frequent travel.
Positions in these classes are not designated as management or super visory although incumbents in the series may occasionally act as "lead persons" performing such functions as training new staff or reviewing the assignments of lower level staff. Such "lead persons" have duties substantially similar to those of their subordinates and they do not have the authority in the interest of management to hire, transfer, suspend, lay off, recall, promote, discharge, assign, reward, discipline, or responsibly direct other employees, or to adjust their grievances, or effectively recommend such actions.Source: www.calhr.ca.gov
