Occupational stress in higher education institutions (HEIs) needs to be taken into due consideration since it can affect the professional efficacy of academicians. This paper surveys the occupational stress faced by the academic staff in a HEI in Mauritius. A total of 245 questionnaires were distributed to five faculties and a total of 163 (66.5 % response rate) questionnaires were returned and analyzed. Exploratory factor analysis with an oblimin (Promax) rotation was employed and the two-factor structure of the JSS which consisted of job pressure and Lack of organizational support was supported. The JSS sub-factors namely Pressure, Severity and Index were found to have good internal consistencies. A confirmatory factor analysis was employed to confirm the factor structure. Adequate construct validity and discriminant validity was present for the two constructs.
