UIF must be deducted from all domestic workers and gardeners who work more than 24 hours a month. (Source Labourguide) All employers have to register with the department of labour as an employer. 1% from the employee’s salary must then be deducted every month, and the employer must make an equal contribution of 1%. A form must be submitted to the department of labour every month before the 7th. Failure to deduct UIF will result in the employer having to pay 2% UIF for the full period during which the employee worked. This can lead to a substantial amount. Contact us now for assistance.
