The Labour Department has stated that it will conduct'mega-blitz inspections' of hospitality venues this week in the Western Cape to ensure that all businesses adhere to proper labour regulations.
‘MEGA-BLITZ’ INSPECTIONS TO TAKE PLACE IN CAPE HOSPITALITY VENUES
The Labor Department's inspections this week are exactly the type of intervention that advocates of the #PutSouthAfricansFirst movement have been calling for. The fringe organization is adamantly opposed to illegal immigration and believes that their concerns have been ignored for far too long.
IMMIGRATION STATUS UP FOR REVIEW
Law enforcement officers will check if workers have the proper documentation and if companies have accurate records for their employees on their books as part of the mega-blitz inspections. Departmental officials will pay visits to hotels, restaurants, and even backpacker lodgers, with the #PSAF group claiming this as a campaign victory.
“The Department of Employment and Labour’s Inspection and Enforcement Services (IES) in the Western Cape Province is set to embark on week-long mega blitz inspections targeting the Hospitality Sector.”
“Our mega blitz inspections will commence from the 24-28 January in the Cape Metropole, Cape Winelands and Overberg. The Department of Home Affairs and the South African Police Services (SAPS) will also form part of the blitz inspections. Institutions like Hotels, Bed and Breakfast facilities, Restaurants and Backpackers will be reviewed.”
