|Abstract:||Job evaluation is not an exact science. Yet notions of “comparability” and “differentials” seem to imply that a set of objective criteria exists which can provide the necessary and sufficient causes for ranking one job higher or lower than another. At the same time, it is commonly accepted that subjective and non-rational factors enter into the evaluation of jobs. One example of such factors (of particular interest in the light of recent legislation) is that of sex bias.|
