Four questions to help you prepare for the labour inspector's next visit…

 
 

QUESTION#1: Do you display a statement of your employee's rights?

You must display your employees' rights in line with the Basic Conditions of Employment Act. This can be easily done through a wall chart.

QUESTION#2: Do you have an attendance register?  

You must keep an attendance record for each employee for at least three years from the date of the first entry.
Include on the register the following four details:

1.       The name and occupation of the employee;
2.       Working hours;
3.       Remuneration;
4.       Any other necessary information in relation to your business.

Keep reading below for the last two questions...

QUESTION#3: Do you provide written details of employment?

You must provide written details of employment to employees as soon as they start working.  Include these details in the employees' employment contracts.

These details include, but are not limited to, the following four points:

1.       The date on which employment began
2.       Ordinary working hours
3.       Wages and
4.       Leave entitlement
 
QUESTION#4: Do you keep all information around payments?

TIP: This can include providing payslips to your employees every month.
 
REMEMBER: A labour inspector can arrive on your doorstep unannounced and that's why it's so important for you to be prepared beforehand.
 
*If you can answer 'YES' to all of these four questions, then you're on the right track for when the labour inspector decides to pop by your business.

To make 110% sure that you're legally compliant for then the inspector rocks up at your doorstep, go to Chapter I 07: Inspections, in your Labour Law for Managers handbook.
