The employers who do not comply with the National Minimum Wage (NMW) Act will be recognized by the whole of South Africa. Their names will be published on the Department of Labour’s website.
“Shaming such employers will ensure they are recognized as people intent on defying the state. This will go on to ensure that they will not be able to do business with government,” the Department’s Chief for Statutory Services Fikiswa Mncanca said.
The National Minimum Wage (NMW) Act that entered into force on January 1, 2019 has a minimum rate of R20 per hour.
On Tuesday, January 29, the Department of Labor announced a forthcoming nationwide audit of the law implementation in South African enterprises.
