UIFIn a letter to the editor of Business Day, Michael Bagraim, MP and Democratic Alliance (DA) employment and labour spokesperson, writes that he has had numerous, countrywide complaints about the Department of Employment and Labour’s website and U-filing.  

The latter was designed for small companies that do not liaise with Sars monthly.  Bagraim claims that the problems with the system are profound, in that the department does not even understand what is wrong.  It does not show salary and employment records of small business employees, merely showing an error message for each.  Employers pay 2% salary less provident fund monthly for each of their employees registered with the Unemployment Insurance Fund (UIF).  Bagraim claims that it does not appear that this data is being entered into the UIF’s back-end system.
