Joint Equity Committee

The Joint Equity Process
As part of the University’s commitment to non-discrimination and equity there is an employment equity document that applies to all academic staff member appointments of one year or longer. The joint equity process is outlined in Article 29 of the MUN/MUNFA collective agreement. 

A search committee shall prepare a file for review by the Joint Equity Committee (JEC) as per Article 29. Please refer to the following flow chart for guidance. Submissions to the JEC would include:

  1. Completed Shortlist Review for Academic Appointments. 
  2. Job ad
  3. Self ID information (employment equity survey results)
  4. CV’s of shortlisted candidates
  5. CV’s of candidates not short-listed who indicated (on the employment equity survey only) that they are an equity-deserving group member and eligible to work in Canada.
