COVID-19 TERSThe Minister of Employment and Labour, T.W. Nxesi has announced measures to be put into place by the Department of Employment and Labour regarding COVID19. Due to administrative constraints the Bargaining Council for the Food Retail, Restaurant, Catering & Allied Trades did not sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Department of Employment and Labour so therefore will not process any applications. Employers that are unable to pay the full salary of workers sent home due to the lockdown are encouraged to apply for the COVID-19 TERS. An e-mail is to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will then receive a reply which outlines the steps, details and requirements to claim benefits.
