Job Evaluation

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‚Äôs framework for Pay Equity and Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value.

The Health Sciences Association of Saskatchewan (HSAS) uses a classification process. Further information about this process can be found in the HSAS Collective Bargaining Agreement.
