EEA9 - Occupational Levels in terms of Section 21 of the Act

OCCUPATIONAL LEVELS

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS ANNEXURE?

Job evaluation or grading systems are used by many organisations to measure jobs according to their content and establish the comparative worth between jobs.

This annexure provides a table of equivalent occupational levels that may be used by employers when completing the EEA2 and EEA4 forms.

INSTRUCTIONS

The table below indicates the occupational levels within organisations as developed through the use of different job evaluation or grading systems. The table provides equivalent levels from each of these job evaluation systems.

Organisations that do not have job evaluation and grading systems should use the table below for guidance to determine the occupational levels in their organisations.
