Be warned of the zero-tolerance stance of the employment of illegal foreign nationals

CDH's Employment Law experts, Hedda Schensema and Taryn York, discuss the warning government has sent out to South African employers, in relation to the hiring of illegal foreign workers, during the recent global mobility conference, held by Xpatweb.

During the conference, government announced that it is adopting a zero-tolerance stance on the hiring of illegal foreign workers in South Africa. The Department of Home Affairs is calling upon all employers to ensure that their expatriate staff are in possession of legally obtained work visas and have confirmed that it will be taking a ‘no-mercy’ stance in respect of employers who do not comply.
