Since May 2014, South Africa business and corporate visa holders must have a workforce with at least 60% South African employees. Additionally, these people must be permanently employed across the business in various positions.
This is, as the Department of Home Affairs has said many times, to protect the interests of South Africans in the workplace.
In a country struggling with a high unemployment rate, this strategy is undeniable necessary.
Unfortunately not all business owners adhere to this regulation and now the Department of Home Affairs has announced they are cracking down on businesses who are ignoring the law.
