Job Evaluation and Classification
Job Evaluation and Classification is a province-wide, health care initiative that involves a coordinated effort between health-sector unions and the employers represented by SAHO:
- The purpose of the job evaluation program is to objectively and fairly determine the relative value of jobs within an organization.
- Job evaluation involves a systematic analysis using four gender-neutral criteria: skill, effort, responsibility, and working conditions.
- Equal pay for work of equal value (pay equity) is achieved through the elimination of gender-based wage discrimination that results in the undervaluation of female dominated jobs.
- The joint job evaluation process adheres to the goals of the province’s framework for Pay Equity and Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value.
