Job Evaluation

Classification and Job Evaluation

Classification and Job Evaluation is a province-wide health care initiative that involves a coordinated effort between health-sector unions and the employers represented by SAHO. The job evaluation process adheres to the goals of the Government of Saskatchewan Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value and Pay Equity Policy Framework.

  Government of Saskatchewan Equal Pay for Work of Equal Value and Pay Equity Policy Framework

  • The purpose of job evaluation 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.
