BRIEFING ON UIF TERS BENEFITS AND INVITATION TO COMPLETE A QUESTIONAIRE ON UIF TERS
Business for South Africa today hosted a webcast where members were invited to hear a presentation and discuss challenges faced in applying for and receiving benefits from the Temporary Employer/Employee Relief Scheme (TERS).
The presentation by Robert Legh and Natalie Singer to the more than 100 participants was followed by a lively and detailed discussion. The presentation can be found at https://www.businessforsa.org/b4sa-media-briefing-uif-ters/
REMINDER: QUESTIONNAIRE ON UIF TERS
In an attempt to determine the scope of unpaid claims and current challenges we’ve designed this quick questionnaire. We’d like to ask for your urgent participation as the information gleaned will assist in our engagements with UIF officials.
Please note that the best person to complete this will be the individual who completed your business’s online application.
Also, we request that you complete a questionnaire per UIF reference number as this questionnaire will double-up as a register of the Issues/Complaints and which will be sent to the UIF team.
To complete the questionnaire, please click on this following link:
It would be particularly useful if you can complete the questionnaire by Thursday 18 June 2020 at 9am, so we can use it in a planned meeting with the UIF.
