Business for South Africa: Daily Member Update, 04 May 2020

PLEASE HEED MANDATORY HEALTH REGULATIONS FOR LEVEL FOUR

Business for South Africa (B4SA) is urging employers to be meticulous in their implementation of the Level 4 restrictions that came to effect on 1 May 2020, as South Africa enters a new phase of its response to COVID-19 in terms of further regulations promulgated under the Disaster Management Act, 2002. The Regulations repeal and replace the previous lockdown regulations of 18 March 2020, as amended.

In an effort to clear up some confusion regarding the COVID-19 Temporary Employer/Employee Relief Scheme (TERS) benefits, the Minister of Employment and Labour signed an amended Directive on 16 April and a Correction Notice on 20 April 2020 respectively.

We have been in shut down for four weeks tonight, with a further week of hard lock-down to go before conditions are eased for a risk-based return of economic activity.

The Minister also communicated that the details of this would be worked on during the week and communicated on Thursday the 30th April.
