It has unfortunately become necessary to increase the contributions to the Sick Pay Fund owing to the large amount of claims to the Fund monthly which has resulted in the Fund depleting substantially over the past few years. To prevent further depletion of the Fund, it was agreed to increase the contribution by 0.04 c per hour (0.02 c ph employer / 0.02 c ph employee). 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 reminded 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.
