In a letter to Business Day, Democratic Alliance (DA) deputy shadow Employment and Labour Minister Michael Bagraim reports that most of the outstanding disputes regarding the Temporary Employer/Employee Relief Scheme (Ters) are slowly being resolved.
The Department of Employment and Labour has now put together a dispute resolution process that has a dedicated e-mail address and a dispute form has been made available. Bagraim recommends that businesses that still have outstanding Ters payment issues go to the department’s website to download the dispute form for the “Dispute Resolution Process with the Covid-19 Ters”. The completed form needs to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bagraim also pointed out that dedicated officials have been appointed to deal with these disputes, including Mzie Yawa, Basimane Dingaan, and Allan Ragavaloo.
