Problems being experienced I.R.O. Workmens Compensation payments
receipt of a complaint from one of FSA's members regarding problems
being experienced with the payment of claims by the Workmens'
Compensation Commissioner, FSA took the matter up with Agri SA. Agri SA
are fully aware of the problems being experienced. As these problems
are not limited to the Forestry / Agricultural sectors alone, Agri SA,
amongst others, have requested Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) to
deal with the matter at a national level through direct consultations
with the Compensation Commissioner.
the interim, should members have any specific problems regarding this
matter, Agri SA's Senior Manager: Labour Relations, Mrs Elize van der
Westhuizen has kindly offered to assist FSA members. Elize can be
contacted on (012) 643 3400 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
When contacting Elize, please supply the following information:
- Farm name
- Registration number at the WC
- Claim number(s)
I trust that this will assist members in resolving any WC related problems they may have.
