Department of Employment & Labour’s Deputy Minister and Director General to engage employers and other stakeholders in the North West
16 November 2020

​​​​The Department of Employment and Labour's Deputy Minister, Boitumelo Moloi and the Director General, Thobile Lamati, will host a breakfast engagement session with employers and other stakeholders in Klerksdorp, North West Province.


The purpose of this breakfast session is to create a platform for strategic discussions on creation of partnerships that will boost the economy and employment of the region and to also create a conducive environment for economic growth as the Department believes that a favourable economic environment would be a catalyst for job creation.


Different stakeholders in both Private and Public sectors have been invited to work together with the Department and to also assist in developing the turn-around strategies to increase productivity levels and job opportunities in the area.


This breakfast engagement session will be followed by delivery of a package of the Department's services to communities in partnership with other government departments within the province. This is part of the Deputy Minister and the Director General's efforts to bring services closer to communities, hence the project is named “Taking Department of Employment & Labour's services to the people".   


The day of service delivery will focus mainly on the much needed services of the Department such as Unemployment Insurance Fund and the Compensation Fund as exacerbated by COVID-19 pandemic. On this day, the department aims to reduce the long queues that are experienced by both the Klerksdorp and the Potchefstroom Labour Centres by ensuring that claims are processed and paid on the spot if all the relevant documentations are provided.  


It is against this background that the Media is invited to attend these events which are scheduled as follows:
