The job evaluation/re-evaluation process can be initiated by the supervisor and/or by an individual employee, should an incumbent be in the position. For positions that are governed by a Collective Agreement, please refer to the appropriate Collective Agreement for a description of the job evaluation process.
The job description is the key document used in the evaluation process. A job description is a written statement which defines the purpose of the position. It also outlines the key job functions, organizational structure, decision making and authority, skills, knowledge and experience and working conditions associated with a position. It is the responsibility of the immediate supervisor to write the job description in conjunction with the incumbent, should one be in place. Draft job descriptions must be submitted to Human Resources for review, input and approval before they are finalized.
