Multiple Dockets on Medical Staff Services Professionals : Response to Comments on 2010 SOC : U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Multiple dockets requested a new detailed occupation for "Medical Staff Services Professionals." The SOCPC did not accept this recommendation based on Classification Principle 2 which states that occupations are classified based on work performed. The work performed by Medical Staff Services Professionals is not managerial in nature. Rather, the role of these workers relates more to Human Resources functions. The commenters describe specialized functions or tasks performed in the proposed occupation that are already sufficiently covered by existing human resources and compliance occupations.
