VC Employee Assist – Your Compliance Partner. We aim to have you protected within the requirements of the law – simplifying and organizing everything on your behalf.
VC Employee Assist was “born” out of a necessity to comply with amended law pertaining to household employees, which was approved in April 2023 and gazetted on 30 May 2023. It stipulates:
Household employees are now considered formal employees under the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act (COIDA) – meaning that anyone employing a domestic worker must comply with the relevant laws. Any employee who works more than 24 hours per month must be registered with the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF), including household employees.
A household employee is someone working inside your home, a gardener, a driver or person who looks after children, the aged, sick, frail or disabled in a private household..
Employers are required to submit a statement of earnings paid to all their workers. It is against the law for failure to submit the ROEs, and penalties will be charged.
VC Employee Assist supplies you with your own, private portal (similar to an electronic “filing cabinet”) giving you access to everything you need to comply with the law, such as:
A Work Contract, Non-Disclosure Document, Payslips, Attendance Registers, Leave Forms, Disciplinary Procedures and Forms, UIF/COIDA registration and compliance, and all other policies and procedures that you are required to have in place, in order to stay protected within the requirements of the law – simplifying and organizing everything on your behalf – making it a no-brainer for you; an absolute admin breeze.
Above and beyond that we also offer you and your employee the following benefits:
Training Manuals and Videos, including assessment forms; Blogs, News and Feedback; as well as Funeral Cover and opportunities to apply for a Bursary Fund for your Employee’s children and grand children
