Alert level 2
South Africa moved to an alert level 2 status regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic since 18 August 2020. Download the Government Gazette dated 17 August 2020 to take note of and implement.
This pandemic undoubtedly has a wide impact on businesses. Although we are currently on an alert level 2, businesses’ loss of income and obligation towards employees is still a great concern for many employers, especially where employers are unable to pay their employees in full.
Every business is unique and we encourage our members to contact the LWO for advice. The LWO is available 24/7 to assist employers with regards to labour law. Please contact the LWO for assistance at 086 110 1828 or if you have any queries in this regard.
