TV-Ärzte-2021 Tier Progression

The table on the right shows how many years of work experience are required to reach the various tiers and how long one must remain in each tier to be eligible for the next tier. The number in parentheses next to the years of experience indicates the additional years required to advance to the next tier. It is helpful for individuals seeking career advancement to know the qualifications for the various tiers. The table includes tiers from - to 6 with corresponding pay grades 1 through 4.

When a new employee is hired, they will be placed in the first tier of that salary scale if they have no relevant work experience. If the employee has at least one year of relevant work experience with the same employer, they will be placed in a higher tier, taking into account the length of their previous employment. If the employee has at least one year of relevant work experience with a different employer, they will be hired at the respective tier, depending on the length of their experience.

Additionally, if the new hire has previously worked in a public sector job under the same salary regulations, the employer may take into account the tier they had achieved in their previous job when determining their tier in the new organization .
