Re: IOL Article: ‘UIF TERS benefits extended another month’
15 October 2020


In this article, the IOL (Independent Online) stated that, “The Minister of Employment and Labour has announced the extension of the Covid-19 Temporary Employer-Employee Relief Scheme (TERS)" until 15 November 2020.

No statement has been made by me or my Department on this matter. Any decision on an extension would be made only after extensive engagement with government, Nedlac and the UIF itself.

I remain concerned at the publication of this false report and I hope that it will be immediately corrected.

TW Nxesi MP, Minister of Employment and Labour
