Work to salary ratio
My name is Deon Johan Notes. Have been working for an outsourcing company for 1 year and 9 months, contracting for a chemical supply company. I am working in the maintenance Dept for the chemical company.
I was instated as a boilermaker when I got the vacancy. But at this time I am doing all maintenance related work as the company saw that I was very highly skilled as a maintenance fitter. I feel that I am not being payed for what I am doing for the company. I am not trade tested artisan. I was told that I would only be given a permanent position if I had my test done. Which is to much for me to afford and not one of the two companies are willing to pay for the training and trade test.
I am doing 4 people’s work and I am being pay one person’s salary.
Please advice me what to do.
The Basic Conditions of Employment Act allows the employer to vary employee contract of employment on terms more favourable than that provided for in the Act. Nothing stops you from approaching your employer to negotiate for a more favourable salary than what you are currently remunerated.
