jobs worth

is  a truncation of the phrase “it’s more than my jobs worth“.   It”s a phrase that I heard in the UK,   not in the US

To me it means the activity  is likely to cost the person their job.   It is something they can’t, or wont,  do.    I’ve not heard the phrase in the US.   It’s  more dramatic than my experience of typical US ways of expressing which are more literally descriptive.    ‘Jobs worth’ is a fairly dramatic refusal to do something outside of known procedures even in the UK.
