Options a, b, c and d are thus correct. Question 9 - Occurrence of wage spillover effects The correct answer is 2. The word spillover refers to the impact which decisions or actions taken by union firms have on nonunion firms. Option 2, which refers to the actions taken by management to bring union and nonunion employees in line, thus refers to the spillover effect. Question 10 - Strategic objective of the pay model The correct answer is 3. If you refer to the strategic objectives of the pay model as it appears in the front of the prescribed book, you will notice that there are three objectives namely efficiency, fairness and compliance . Although administration (option 3) is very important, it is not an objective of the pay model and option 3 is thus the correct answer to the question. 4 COMMENTS ON ASSIGNMENT 02 Question 1 - Factors that do not play a role when developing a pay structure The correct answer is 4. The pay structure of an organisation must comply with certain legal requirements. The employer should for example take care that no discrimination or unfairness exist in the compensation structure. Employee satisfaction with salaries is also important to ensure sound labour relations. Working conditions play a huge role in the ease with which employees can perform their duties and therefore the pay structure should compensate employees for difficult or unpleasant working conditions. Employee characteristics such as personality, creativity and ethnicity do not play a role in the development of a pay structure. It does however, play a role in the appointment of employees. Question 2 - Legally required benefits The correct answer is 4. Pension, medical insurance and group life insurance are not required by law. It is only payment for time not worked (vacation leave) that is a legally required benefit. Question 3 - First decision in a job analysis The correct answer is 4. Various types of information such as the data collection method, source of information, employee acceptance of the results and the purpose of the job analysis need to be considered when performing a job analysis. The first and most important aspect to consider however is the purpose of the job analysis. Question 4 - Basis for evaluating jobs The correct answer is 2. When the value of a job is determined, aspects such as the skills required, relative value of the job and the job content need to be considered. Individual performance does not play a role. It does however play a role when an organisation makes use of a pay-for-performance compensation plan to determine the salary of an employee. Question 5 - Characteristics of a benchmark job The correct answer is 2. Benchmark jobs’ content are well known and stable. Benchmark jobs are also common across a number of different organisations and they are accepted in the labour market for setting pay levels.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
