Department of Labour

I'm flipping livid. My domestic has been working for me three half days a week for the last ten years. She earns way above the minimum and gets double bonus every year and I've paid for about three family members to be interred in this space of time as well.

So the bloody dept of labour goes cruising around the neighbourhood and gets their "Madam's" details and then the badgering starts. She doesnt qualify for UIF as she doesnt work the required 27 hours a month for me, she does have a contract with me but who knows in which file that bloody thing is mouldering away.

I have just been subpoena'd by the dept of labour to appear IN PERSON with the relevant documentation and a sworn statement as to why she has not been registered for UIF and who knows what other shit.

She's due back on Monday from leave, she's getting two month's worth of severance pay and needs to go immediately after surrendering the house keys. What a fuckup. After ten years and a great relationship, the farking government just stuffed up another woman's earning power.

I have nothing good to say about them either. My experiences with this office immediately after my retrenchment led me to believe that efficiency of the whole UIF system is very suspect.

The cut off is 24 hours a month. If she worked for you 3 half days a week, that exceeds 24 hours a month, and therefore she should have paid UIF contibutions of 2% of her salary (well, you pay 1% and she pays 1%). But why are you canning her? It isn't her fault, and why chuck away a good worker over this?

One more reason why I either do my own household chores, or just live like a pig, depending on what I'm in the mood for.
