The national NHS Agenda for Change Job Evaluation Scheme meets the criteria under the Equal Pay Act 1970 for being an analytical, non-discriminatory scheme.
The aim of this Policy is to ensure that the national Job Evaluation Scheme (JES) is implemented locally in a robust and equitable manner and provide assurance that staff pay is compliant with the Act.
The Trust is committed to the principle of equal pay for equal work and to working in partnership with staff side to ensure that this is delivered. Working in partnership, the Trust will ensure that all jobs within the organisation that are subject to Agenda for Change Terms and Conditions of Service are evaluated in accordance with the national guidance.
All members of job evaluation panels will be appropriately trained to ensure the integrity of the scheme is maintained.
In accordance with national guidance, the Trust will ensure appropriately trained Staff Side and Management Side Leads are identified to oversee the on-going implementation of the scheme.
