“Commission only” employees
What about performance?
- This confirms the tasks/duties that the employer employs the employee to perform.
- It links a fixed standard regarding quantity and quality to the above tasks/duties.
- It forms the basis of regular performance appraisals when looking at increases and/or performance bonuses.
- The job description is a critically important document when addressing poor work performance.
What about UIF and COIDA?
UIA applies to all employers and employees (excluding employees working less than 24 hours a month for an employer). An employer does not have any discretion whether or not to register for unemployment insurance and to pay over the monthly contributions (1% deducted from the employee’s salary for the employee’s contribution and 1% of the employee’s salary for the employer’s contribution).
COIDA applies to all employers and casual and full-time employees who, as a result of a workplace accident or work-related disease are injured, disabled, killed or become ill. An employer carrying on business in South Africa, must register with the Compensation Commissioner, and pay the annual assessment fee.
