EC Classification Update

March 16, 2007

The Public Service Human Resources Management Agency of Canada has provided the following update to the Heads of Human Resources across the federal public service. As far as the work description writing exercise is concerned, CAPE recommends strongly to departments that they prepare work descriptions in a format that corresponds to the nine elements of the EC classification standard. It is crucial that work descriptions reveal clearly the entire spectrum of value required of each EC position if unnecessary grievances are to be avoided.
