Some of the Department of Labour telephone lines not working

by lloyd last modified 2018-12-06 17:22


This media alert serves to inform members of the public, strategic stakeholders and clients of the Department of Labour that the telephone lines for some of the offices of the Department are currently not working.

Affected offices are as follows;
 Department of Labour Provincial Office in Bloemfontein
 Bloemfontein Labour Centre and
 Welkom Labour Centre

The Department is working around the clock to resolve the problem to ensure that Departmental officials can be contacted at any given time during working hours by clients. “We fully understand that telephones are the most used mode of communication between the Department and its clients, thus we are doing everything in our power to have them fixed,” said Nomfundo Douw-Jack – Head of the Department of Labour in the Free State.

Alternative arrangements are currently being made to ensure service delivery is not adversely affected by this. As a result, clients are advised to phone the following cellphone numbers whilst the Department is busy trying to fix these faulty lines.

 Bloemfontein Labour Centre: Wendy Williams 072 388 4132
 Welkom Labour Centre: Ita Sauer 082 908 2409
 Unemployment Insurance Fund: Morgan Ramatsetse 082 301 9018
 Compensation Fund: Nandipha Kahla 082 558 6899
 Inspection and Enforcement Services: Johan Lombard 072 972 4062
 Public Employment Services: Emily Maneli 082 889 7687

“We therefore plead with our clients to exercise patience and be considerate of the situation within which we find ourselves. We are trying our level best to find an amicable and speedy resolution to this setback. With that alternative arrangement in mind, of great importance to note is the fact that, the usage of the above-mentioned numbers is just a temporary measure until such time our lines are functional,” concluded Ms. Douw-Jack.
