Domestic Worker 

Many South Africans employ domestic staff, and there are a number of formal obligations that the employer has towards their domestic employees.

For example:

  • An employee contract
  • Recording annual leave and sick leave
  • Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF)
  • Payroll
  • 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 farm workers are excluded from this definition. This is the view taken in the Unemployment Insurance Contributions Act No. 4 of 2002.

Let Alfa & Omega NBS guide you through the process to ensure successful placement and legal compliance for your domestic workers.
