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 as per article 30 and depicted in this flow chart. Submissions to the Joint Equity Committee would include submissions of the following:

  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 a target group member and eligible to work in Canada.
