Knowing unemployment exists, it is important you check on your employer to know if the right thing is being done. The unemployment insurance fund is meant to support individuals who may be unemployed for the right reasons; before you can have this support, you must be registered with UIF and have contributed a number of times.
The UIF registration process only comes when you receive a job offer from an employer. The employer has to ensure your UIF registration is done within the company. As part of the employer’s obligations, the employee’s details must be sent to the department of labour. In accordance with the law, the employer must ensure your 2% is done based on your salary and paid to UIF.
In this case, the only way to follow your employer is to know the process involved in checking if you are UIF registered.
How Do You Check If You Are Registered For UIF?
Checking if you are registered for UIF is a task that every employee should be able to do, whether there is a strong bond between the employer and the employee. The UIF is your insurance coverage; therefore, you must ensure the right thing is being done at all times.
This is the more reason why the employee details are submitted to the right institution and also to have access to the UIF portal at all times.
Checking on your employer should be on a good note, confirming that your UIF contributions are going into the right account. If you are registered with UIF and your contributions are not done, UIF does not recognize you as a beneficiary.
Although the department of labour may take action against the employer, it can also go against you, the employee, should you be retrenched or dismissed without being at fault. As we inform our readers about UIF and its process, we will take you through a step-by-step approach to check if you are registered with UIF.
