COMPARABILITY OF VALUE OF WORK
Determination of Comparability of Value of Work
(a) "Comparability of the Value of Work": The value of the work measured by the needs of the employer and the knowledge, composite skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions required in the performance of the work;
(b) "Hay Method": The Hay Guide Chart-Profile Method of job evaluation.
(2) Use of Hay Method of Job Evaluation; The Legislative Administration Committee shall use the Hay Method of job evaluation to determine the comparability of the value of work. This methodology measures the knowledge, composite skill, effort, responsibility and working conditions required in the performance of work.
(3) Job Evaluation Factors: The Legislative Administration Committee shall apply the four Hay Method Job evaluation factors:
(a) Know-how, problem-solving and accountability are three job content factors common to each classification:
(A) Know-how measures the various types and levels of every kind of knowledge and skill, however acquired, necessary to perform the work of the classification. This factor includes the knowledge base, managerial know-how and human relations skills;
(B) Problem-solving measures the complexity of the work. This factor includes the environment in which thinking takes place and the mental challenge required to perform the assigned work;
(C) Accountability measures answerability for actions, the results of actions taken and decisions made. This factor includes freedom to act, impact of the job on end results of the organization and the magnitude of that impact.
(b) Working conditions is a job context factor not common to each classification. This fourth factor applies only when the duties assigned to a classification include those requiring unusual sensory or muscular effort, or both, exposing an individual to physically unpleasant or hazardous conditions, or both, or causing exceptional non-physical work demands such as time demands, role loading or emotion loading, or all three or a combination of the three.
