Pay Equity Characteristics Definitions
and Example Factors

Pay Equity Def image


The revised law requires each organization to compare all jobs against 5 characteristics: knowledge, skill, effort, responsibility, and working conditions.  The law defines working conditions and provides each organization the flexibility to define the remaining characteristics.  From our knowledge base and experience from working with so many clients, we offer these definitions for the characteristics that your organization can use “as-is” or as a starting point for you own work on compliance.

Job Characteristic Profile System


This system allows an organization to measure each job in the organization against the five comparable characteristics required by the law.  This is an Excel workbook with predefined characteristics and standards of measurement.  The organization can use “as-is” or can edit to meet the organization’s specific needs.  Drop-down menus and color coding have been used to make data entry easy.   A report of groupings of jobs with comparable characteristic is accomplished automatically when the data entry is complete.  (Note: there are two different version of our profile system.  One for organization’s with less than 15 jobs and one for organization with less than 50 jobs.)
