30 April 2018

The dawn of the worker’s month will see the Director General, Mr Thobile Lamati visiting Port Elizabeth Labour offices on the 02nd May 2018 to look at service delivery issues focusing on Compensation Fund and Unemployment Insurance Fund client matters. He will on the following day, 03rd May 2018, with a team of  Inspectors  head to East London companies paying attention to Wholesale and Retail, Construction and Chemical sectors.

“These sectors are amongst those where most vulnerable workers are and where there is non-compliance with the Basic Conditions of Employment Act and Occupational Health and Safety Act. The visits will assist in pinning down employers who contravene the law and is also aimed at ensuring that the rights of workers are not infringed”, said Director General, Mr Thobile Lamati

Workers month recognises the rights and responsibilities of employees. The department wants to ensure compliance with labour legislations and encourage a healthy and safe working environment. It also entrenches  good governance by ensuring that employees treat clients with respect and integrity whilst upholding Batho Pele Principles.-ENDS-
