The Job Evaluation System for Bargaining Unit Employees is a point factor system and it addresses four standard criteria recognized in all pay equity legislation for the purpose of job evaluation, namely: Skill, Effort, Responsibility and Working Conditions.
The Job Evaluation System includes the following nine factors:
The Job Class Profile (JCP) has been developed by the JES Project Team, Human Resource Secretariat from the representative sample of Position Description Questionnaire's (PDQ's) submitted by select employees for each existing class. The JCP reflects key and periodic activities typically found in the class and how the class is impacted by the nine factors outlined above.
Each Job Class Profile is a rating under a set of application guidelines. Each factor has a range of ratings within them. Once the rating is decided for each factor, points are then assigned based on the weighting of each factor.
A Factor Weightings Spreadsheet below shows the points attached to each rating under each of the factors.
Your Job Class Profile includes the ratings and points at the top of the document and also includes the pay level and the associated point band (range of points) for that pay level.
The JES Evaluation Framework is the application guidelines used to rate positions.
Employees who wish to have their classifications reviewed under the new Job Evaluation System (JES) are able to do so by following the guidelines in the link below.
