Job Title Revisions to Eliminate Sex- and Age-Referent Language from the Dictionary of Occupational Titles. Third Edition.
Manpower Administration (DOL), Washington, DC.
The publication brings job titles in the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, Third Edition, into conformance with equal employment legislation and with recent administration policy statements and instructions which prohibit the use of sex- and/or age-referent language by the public employment service. Job titles that have sex and/or age identification are, wherever possible, revised in favor of titles that do not connote age or sex. Nearly 3,500 job titles have been revised and are listed in the publication, including approximately 2,200 base job titles, 130 defined related job titles, 1,100 undefined related job titles, three master definition titles, and 60 term titles. Five different job title data arrangements are provided: (1) an alphabetical listing by current Dictionary of Occupational Titles, Third Edition, job titles which are affected by this revision; (2) a numerical listing by the nine-digit codes of the Dictionary job titles affected by this listing; (3) an alphabetical listing by revised job titles; (4) an alphabetical listing by current Dictionary of Occupational Titles, Third Edition, master definitions and term titles which are affected by this listing; and (5) an alphabetical listing by revised master definition and term titles.
