It has unfortunately become necessary to reintroduce a contribution to the Sick Benefit Fund, as this Fund has been paying benefits since 2008 without any contributions. Due to the Fund facing depletion, it was decided to reintroduce a 0.05c per hour contribution as from 1 October 2018 to ensure the continued existence of the Sick Benefit Fund. Membership of this Fund ensures that employees claim payment for sick leave and family responsibility leave from this Fund, instead of from their employers.
Employers are also advised that voluntary membership of the Council’s Medical Aid Fund is available to all MBA employers and to all employees in the industry.
For details regarding this, please contact the Council’s MEDICAL AID FUND.
Should you experience any difficulty in interpreting the schedules, please do not hesitate to contact the Council’s offices in Port Elizabeth for further explanation.
