Administrative​ ​Procedure​ ​401

FAIR​ ​HIRING​ ​PRACTICE Background The​ ​district​ ​believes​ ​that​ ​the​ ​quality​ ​of​ ​its​ ​education​ ​programs​ ​is​ ​directly​ ​related​ ​to​ ​the​ ​calibre​ ​of its​ ​teaching,​ ​administrative​ ​and​ ​support​ ​staff.​ ​The​ ​district​ ​will​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​its​ ​recruitment​ ​and selection​ ​procedures​ ​are​ ​designed​ ​to​ ​secure​ ​the​ ​best​ ​possible​ ​personnel​ ​who​ ​will​ ​foster​ ​the district’s​ ​short-term​ ​and​ ​long-term​ ​goals​ ​of​ ​excellence​ ​in​ ​public​ ​education. Hiring​ ​processes​ ​will​ ​reflect​ ​the​ ​provisions​ ​of​ ​government​ ​legislation,​ ​applicable​ ​collective agreements​ ​and​ ​Board​ ​policies​ ​and​ ​district​ ​administrative​ ​procedures.​ ​The​ ​district​ ​recruitment and​ ​selection​ ​process​ ​will​ ​integrate​ ​the​ ​principles​ ​of​ ​employment​ ​equity. The​ ​district’s​ ​commitment​ ​to​ ​fair​ ​hiring​ ​will​ ​be​ ​reflected​ ​in​ ​practices​ ​relating​ ​to​ ​the​ ​engagement of​ ​full-time,​ ​term,​ ​part-time​ ​and​ ​casual​ ​or​ ​substitute​ ​employees. Procedures 1. Principles​ ​of​ ​Fairness 1.1

Accountability:​ ​All​ ​persons​ ​who​ ​are​ ​authorized​ ​to​ ​represent​ ​the​ ​district​ ​in​ ​hiring processes,​ ​as​ ​agents​ ​of​ ​the​ ​district,​ ​are​ ​governed​ ​by​ ​the​ ​procedures​ ​of​ ​the​ ​district, and​ ​are​ ​accountable​ ​to​ ​the​ ​chief​ ​superintendent.


Confidentiality:​ ​All​ ​persons​ ​involved​ ​in​ ​hiring​ ​processes​ ​are​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​ensuring that​ ​information​ ​concerning​ ​candidates,​ ​which​ ​is​ ​acquired​ ​during​ ​the​ ​hiring​ ​process, is​ ​held​ ​in​ ​strict​ ​confidence​ ​and​ ​is​ ​shared​ ​only​ ​with​ ​the​ ​appropriate​ ​staff​ ​and​ ​resource persons.​ ​All​ ​documents​ ​relating​ ​to​ ​employment,​ ​including​ ​the​ ​application​ ​itself,​ ​are confidential​ ​documents.​ ​No​ ​public​ ​discussion​ ​will​ ​take​ ​place​ ​during​ ​a​ ​meeting​ ​that may​ ​divulge​ ​any​ ​personal​ ​matter​ ​concerning​ ​any​ ​candidate.


Competency:​ ​Those​ ​who​ ​represent​ ​the​ ​district​ ​in​ ​employee​ ​selection​ ​processes​ ​must have​ ​the​ ​knowledge​ ​and​ ​skills​ ​necessary​ ​to​ ​make​ ​defensible​ ​recommendations. Those​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​preparing​ ​advertisements,​ ​screening,​ ​interviewing,​ ​testing​ ​and conducting​ ​reference​ ​checks​ ​must​ ​have​ ​a​ ​clear​ ​understanding​ ​of​ ​job​ ​requirements and​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​applicants​ ​are​ ​treated​ ​consistently.


Impartiality:​ ​Candidates​ ​for​ ​employment​ ​with​ ​the​ ​district​ ​are​ ​entitled​ ​to​ ​a​ ​hiring process​ ​that​ ​is​ ​conducted​ ​by​ ​unbiased​ ​people.​ ​Selection​ ​committee​ ​members​ ​have an​ ​obligation​ ​to​ ​disqualify​ ​themselves​ ​as​ ​participants​ ​in​ ​a​ ​hiring​ ​process​ ​if​ ​their objectivity​ ​may​ ​be​ ​compromised​ ​for​ ​any​ ​reason​ ​including​ ​the​ ​fact​ ​that​ ​a​ ​candidate may​ ​be​ ​a​ ​relative.


Consistency:​ ​Consistency​ ​will​ ​be​ ​provided​ ​in​ ​the​ ​recruitment​ ​and​ ​selection​ ​process including:

April​ ​2016 Page​ ​1​ ​of​ ​3


Consistent​ ​use​ ​of​ ​selection​ ​criteria​ ​and​ ​weighting​ ​for​ ​similar​ ​jobs;


Consistency​ ​in​ ​the​ ​procedures​ ​applied​ ​to​ ​applicants​ ​in​ ​a​ ​competition;​ ​and


Consistency​ ​in​ ​the​ ​way​ ​in​ ​which​ ​applicants​ ​are​ ​treated​ ​in​ ​interviews.


Accessibility​ ​of​ ​information:​ ​The​ ​district​ ​will​ ​strive​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​the​ ​public​ ​and present​ ​employees​ ​(subject​ ​to​ ​provisions​ ​of​ ​collective​ ​agreements)​ ​will​ ​have reasonable​ ​access​ ​to​ ​information​ ​about​ ​employment​ ​opportunities​ ​with​ ​the​ ​district. Depending​ ​on​ ​the​ ​nature​ ​of​ ​the​ ​position,​ ​notices​ ​may​ ​be​ ​published​ ​through newspapers,​ ​bulletin​ ​board​ ​postings,​ ​direct​ ​mail,​ ​by​ ​electronic​ ​means,​ ​or​ ​through​ ​the services​ ​of​ ​Human​ ​Resources​ ​personnel.​ ​Copies​ ​of​ ​job​ ​descriptions​ ​will​ ​be​ ​available to​ ​candidates​ ​on​ ​request.


Continuity​ ​in​ ​human​ ​resources​ ​management:​ ​The​ ​employee​ ​selection​ ​process​ ​is considered​ ​to​ ​be​ ​the​ ​first​ ​step​ ​in​ ​an​ ​ongoing​ ​human​ ​resources​ ​relationship.​ ​In​ ​order to​ ​ensure​ ​that​ ​this​ ​relationship​ ​be​ ​founded​ ​on​ ​mutual​ ​understandings​ ​that​ ​will continue​ ​to​ ​develop​ ​in​ ​the​ ​workplace,​ ​it​ ​is​ ​important​ ​that​ ​where​ ​possible​ ​the supervisor​ ​who​ ​will​ ​be​ ​responsible​ ​for​ ​on-the-job​ ​evaluation​ ​of​ ​the​ ​employee​ ​is included​ ​in​ ​the​ ​hiring​ ​process.

2. Components​ ​of​ ​hiring​ ​process​ ​in​ ​assessing​ ​suitability​ ​for​ ​employment 2.1

Components​ ​of​ ​the​ ​hiring​ ​process​ ​in​ ​assessing​ ​suitability​ ​for​ ​employment​ ​will incorporate​ ​the​ ​provisions​ ​of​ ​the​ ​employment​ ​equity​ ​administrative​ ​procedure​ ​and programs​ ​of​ ​the​ ​district.


The​ ​selection​ ​of​ ​individuals​ ​for​ ​employment​ ​with​ ​the​ ​district​ ​is​ ​based​ ​on​ ​ability​ ​and qualifications,​ ​assessed​ ​through​ ​some​ ​or​ ​all​ ​of​ ​the​ ​following​ ​components:



Letters​ ​of​ ​application​ ​and​ ​resumé;


On-the-job​ ​experience​ ​and​ ​performance​ ​evaluations​ ​(existing​ ​employees);


Employment​ ​history;


Results​ ​of​ ​tests​ ​and​ ​other​ ​job-related​ ​assessment​ ​techniques;


Interview​ ​evaluations;


Reference​ ​checks.

Criminal​ ​record​ ​and​ ​security​ ​checks:​ ​ ​The​ ​district​ ​reserves​ ​the​ ​right​ ​to​ ​disqualify candidates​ ​whose​ ​history​ ​includes​ ​evidence​ ​that​ ​they​ ​are​ ​unsuitable​ ​for​ ​employment in​ ​an​ ​educational​ ​environment.
