Employer is asking me to stamp documents as P.Eng, advice?
My boss just told me that I had been assigned a project where I would be required to stamp documents as a P.Eng. Couple of notes:
- Job description doesn't require P.Eng, there are diploma holders doing the same thing I am (without stamping)
- THis doesn't look like its a 1 time thing, but ongoing
What should I do? My current plan isn't the most fleshed out, but I plan to let my employer know that I was not expecting to stamp as it was not a job requirement.
Also, does this situation warrant asking for a pay raise if I will be stamping documents regularly?
EDIT: I am a P.Eng, and this position has 3x P.Eng and 4x non P.Eng. I was assigned a project usually assigned to a P.Eng (not harder or anything, it just requires stamps bc the industry is heavily regulated), doesn't look like its a 1 time thing.
We submit bill of materials, process & instrumentation dwg, and general arrangement dwgs to customers, but one particular industry requires these 3 to be stamped. I'm fine with stamping BOM & P&ID, but the GA is by a designer not directly under my purview but under the department head.
