LEITE, Wilza Karla dos Santos et al. New job stress scale: factor and convergent validity, and reliability. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.2, pp. 1463-1472. ISSN 1984-6657.

To evaluate occupational stress, one of the most recent scales adapted for Portuguese is the short version of the 2004 Job Stress Scale (JSS). In 2016, a new English version called the New Job Stress Scale (NJSS) was developed. The objective of this paper was to adapt the NJSS, which measures a set of stressors related to work development, to the Portuguese language. A translated and adapted Portuguese version of the NJSS and the short and adapted Portuguese version of the JSS were applied, and 674 workers (industrial and services sector) from five Brazilian cities participated. A model with 20 items proved to be more adequate than the original (χ2/gl = 2.22; CFI = .95; GFI = .96; TLI = .94; ECVI = 1.96; and, RMSEA = .08). It was concluded that the NJSS has a reliable factorial structure to measure occupational stress in Brazil.
