Weighting that is not separately identified, but is an integral part of job evaluation or equal value assessment scheme.

For example, conflating two types of work demand under one factor heading rather than two. Other things being equal, the net result is that in each case both types of demand have a smaller proportionate contribution to the outcome, than factors where such conflation is avoided.

Weighting of this type can be deliberate or unwitting, as can any sex discrimination generated by a scheme.
