Every employee must have a job description that contains the following, says The Code of Good Practice

The Code of Good Practice on the Preparation, Implementation and Monitoring of Employment Equity says you must ensure all your employees have job descriptions that contain certain minimum requirements. These include:

#1: The role and duties of the job;

#2: A description of the outputs of the job. The Code says this must be an accurate and current picture of what functions make up the job and mustn't include unrelated tasks;

#3: The job's location, purpose, responsibilities, authority levels, supervisory levels, and the inter-relationships between the job and other jobs in the same area;

#4: A description of the inputs of the job. This must contain details about the knowledge, experience, qualifications, skills and attributes required to perform the job effectively; and

#5: The essential or inherent requirements of the job so that your employee understands the minimum requirements of the position.

Keep this important point in mind when it comes to job descriptions

You must ensure that both interviewers and candidates are familiar with the content of the job description at the interview stage. This way you can make a meaningful assessment of the applicant's suitability to perform the functions on the job description.

Now that you know what to include in your employee's job description, comply with The Code of Good Practice.
