Inequity occurs when a worker feels that he/she worked just as hard as the other person, but earns a lower salary. 2. Job Evaluation - A systematic process for determining the worth of a job.

These factors include: Skill/know-how, Knowledge, Effort, Mental Effort, Responsibility, and Working Conditions. Then a point rating scale is used to evaluate physical and mental effort.
