A word/phrase for something that does not do justice to something?

This system of evaluation is not doing justice to the employees’ work. Those who are good are getting fewer scores, and those who are not good are getting higher scores. The system does not reveal good/bad traits in a fair, proper, or just way. It does not show the merits of the employees properly.

Looking at your wider context it is possibly best to say “This system misjudges the value of…”
