  6. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Employment Equity Purpose: Ensure that all members of our community have access to positions and opportunities for advancement Job qualifications are assessed in relation to the requirement of the position. EE is about ensuring that all qualified candidates are considered, that the best candidate is hired and that those who are hired have equitable access for advancement. Legislation: Federal Contractors Program (FCP) Ontario Human Rights Code

  7. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: EE Self-Disclosure Process: Candidate discloses to the Dean in confidence Dean reviews the proposed short list. If Candidate’s name is not on the short list the Dean may inquire about why the Candidate was not short-listed If the Dean is concerned that those from the designate groups are not being short-listed at a higher frequency then others, please contact the Employment Equity Officer to review job requirements and the selection process

  8. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Reviewing Applications Establish processes for discussing and selecting candidates to short-list and recommend for appointment BEFORE DAPC/LAPC proceeds to select a short list. Will all candidates be discussed in the meeting, or just people’s top choices? How many? What voting system will you use? First meeting and the Evaluation Grid

  9. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Reviewing Applications Develop an evaluation grid which all members of the hiring committee fill out for all candidates based on the ad criteria and 13.11.7 It is good practice for the chair to collect and retain all evaluation grids for a period of at least one year. Depending on how the ad is worded, you have may some yes/no questions at the beginning of the grid that may initially exclude some candidates from further consideration. i.e. candidate does not have a Ph.D. when ad specifies that the successful candidate must have a Ph.D.

  10. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Reviewing Applications From an EE perspective, keep in mind: Non-traditional career paths Alternative work experience Experiences and qualifications outside the norm Educational experience

  11. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Interview Process Be sure to give all candidates a copy of the WLUFA information pamphlet for new appointees (13.11.8 FTCA) Develop and use a set of standard questions Develop and use a post-interview evaluation grid based on the components of the interview Collect and retain evaluation grids for at least one year

  13. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Interview Process Things to consider: Words mean different things in different languages – avoid metaphors Do not be influenced by body language Avoid stereotypes, people within a cultural group may not share their group’s values or norms Legal obligation to accommodate disabilities during the recruitment process – ask candidates in advance of the interview

  14. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Making a Recommendation DAPC recommends to department-in-council (or for Music, SW, Education and Brantford, faculty-in-council) a rank-ordered list of candidates for the position (13.11.9) Once approved, the chair presents this recommendation (along with his or her own recommendation) to the Dean and includes a summary of DAPCs assessment of the rank-ordered candidates (13.11.10)

  15. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Making a Recommendation Note of Caution: Don’t inform the top-ranked candidate that he or she has been recommended until the Dean confirms that the candidate will be contacted and offered the position. Don’t inform the other rank-ordered candidates that they did not get the position until a candidate has accepted the position. DAPC meetings are confidential and it is important to stress this at the beginning of the hiring process. This becomes particularly important when there are internal candidates. Internal candidates should not be invited to attend the research presentations of other candidates or the dept-in-council meeting to recommend a rank-ordered list of candidates CVs and other candidate material should be kept in a secure location and signed out only to DAPC members.

  16. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Making a Recommendation After the recommendation is presented to the Dean: The Dean speaks to candidate about salary and other terms of the appointment. Depending on the availability of the candidate this could take several weeks of back and forth. Once the negotiations are finalized the Dean’s office prepares and compiles the information to accompany the recommendation and sends to the VP: Academic’s office. The recommendation has to be signed off by the VP: Academic and the President before the appointment letter is prepared for the VP: Academic’s signature. Depending on the President’s and the VP: Academic’s schedule it could be a few days before the appointment letter is prepared.

  17. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Making a Recommendation After the recommendation is presented to the Dean: Faculty Relations works on preparing and sending out the appointment letters as soon as they are received. The appointment is finalized once a signed letter is received from the candidate. The candidate is not on the payroll until Faculty Relations has notified Payroll that the signed letter has been received, as well as all necessary documentation. What can delay this process.........

  18. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Letter of Offer What can delay this process.... Incorrect mailing address provided to our office. Candidate is out of town and not picking up mail or they can’t be reached as to appropriate place to courier package. Candidate is not a Canadian Citizen

  21.

  22. Administering the WLUFA Collective Agreement: Hiring and Searches Non-Canadian – Work permit and SIN A non-Canadian applying for a position should already be looking at what they need to work in Canada. For example, they may need a criminal check which would further delay processing.
