Employment and Labour conducts door-to-door campaign in Pixley ka Seme District, 14 to 18 Oct

Unemployment Insurance Fund on a door-to-door campaign to meet with employers and strengthen compliance in Pixley ka Seme District

The Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF) will be on the road to conduct a door-to-door campaign in the Pixley Ka Seme District, targeting workplaces around De Aar from 1418 October 2019. The main objective of this campaign is to visit employers and assess the level of compliance with the Unemployment Insurance Act (UIA) and Unemployment Insurance Contribution Act (UICA). The campaign is also meant to promote on-line declaration through U-Filing and advocacy on amendments of the UIA.

The team of UIF employees accompanied by Employer Audits inspectors will be knocking on doors in various workplaces in efforts to assist employers on all aspects of registration and compliance as well as to resolve UIF enquiries.

This door-to-door campaign will also serve to mobilise and distribute flyers in preparation of ex-mineworkers registration campaign in the areas of Colesberg, De Aar and Prieska planned for 0407 November 2019. As such, the team will be issuing Bank Forms (U.I 2.8) to potential applicants (ex-mineworkers) who left their employment in the mining sector before 01 April 2002.

Employers and Employees are therefore urged to take full advantage of this valuable service delivery intervention.
