In 2015 the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador introduced a new job evaluation system for unionized positions. The overall objective is the implementation of a new and comprehensive classification framework, supported by a contemporary Job Evaluation System that is efficient, transparent, user-friendly, and understood by all participants.

Job evaluation is a means of determining the relative value of jobs within an organization utilizing job evaluation methodology and tools. Principles that are fundamental in the development of the Job Evaluation System include confirmation of job content, and consistent evaluation of job content, roles and responsibilities.

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.
