In employment and wage statistics, a job (or position) corresponds to the relationship of an employee and an establishment during a given period of time. Thus, an employee who works in two establishments (on a given date or over a certain period of time, such as a year) occupies two positions. Conversely, several employment contracts between the employee and the same establishment (on a given date or successively over a certain period of time) constitute a single position.
The concept of main position allows for only one position per employee. An employee's main position is the most remunerative position. The concept of an "additional" position makes it possible to exclude from certain statistics positions with a low volume of work and a low level of associated remuneration.
In the general case, a position is considered to be "non-additional" if the remuneration is higher than 3 monthly minimum wage rates or if the duration of employment exceeds 30 days and 120 hours and the number of hours/duration ratio is higher than 1.5.
The job is the basic statistical unit for the results from the "All-employee" files, DADS (annual declaration of social data), Siasp (System for information on civil servants), Clap (local knowledge of the productive system) and Flores (pay and salaried employment localized file), which succeeds Clap from 2017.
