The Durban Labour Court has ordered 17 employers in KwaZulu-Natal to pay their employees outstanding wages amounting to R68 298, 10.

Released by Department of Labour on 01 April 2008

The Durban Labour Court has ordered 17 employers in KwaZulu-Natal to pay their employees outstanding wages amounting to R68 298, 10.

 

This comes after the defaulting employers continued to disregard the law by ignoring the compliance orders that the Labour Department issued to them on separate occasions. The Department then took the matter up with the Labour Court where judgement was handed down unopposed for all cases.

 

All the guilty employers operating in the security, domestic, wholesale & retail, civil engineering, construction and bakery sectors were ordered to immediately pay the outstanding wages to their employees with interest.They were also fined for non-compliance and will be held liable for all legal costs incurred.

 

Should the companies fail to adhere to the court order, the Sheriff of Court will then be engaged to attach assets after which the proceeds of the sale thereof will be paid to the workers.A further four cases have been set to be heard at the Labour Court today.
