Many South Africans employ domestic staff, and there are a number of formal obligations that the employer has towards their domestic employees.
- An employee contract
- Recording annual leave and sick leave
- Unemployment Insurance Fund
- Medical Aid
- Retirement Provision
It is illegal not to have the proper paperwork and deductions in place. A domestic worker can fulfil many roles, such as: a gardener, driver or person who looks after children, the aged, sick, frail or disabled in a private household but farmworkers are excluded from this definition. This is the view taken in the Unemployment Insurnace Contributions Act No. 4 of 2002
Let Alfa & Omega NBS guide you through the process to ensure the successful placement and legal compliance for your domestic workers.
