Cosatu and the South African Human Rights Commission have warned employers not to force workers to strike for Covid-19.
He said some of the workers had expressed fears that they might lose their jobs if they refused to be vaccinated against the virus.
Pamla said employers should not force workers to vaccinate because they have a right.
"President Cyril Ramaphosa has also made it clear that vaccination is voluntary, not mandatory. We support the call for people to be vaccinated but not forced. ”
He said employers should make other arrangements that would allow workers to work from home instead of working in offices as the virus was still prevalent.
The SAHRC said those who had been threatened with eviction because they were not vaccinated should report it.
Mr Buang Jones of the commission, said people did not report because vaccinations were not compulsory.
"If your employer says everyone should be vaccinated because it is mandatory and you feel you do not agree with this decision, report it to us so that we can intervene."
He said they had started receiving complaints that some would be fired if they did not go on strike.
"We will gather evidence in all cases and announce the direction."
Acting Health Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi has always emphasized that no one has been forced to vaccinate Covid-19.
He has repeatedly urged those who do not comply with the vaccine to encourage others not to be vaccinated.
During a visit to some of the vaccines in Tembisa, Johannesburg, he said they wanted to reach the target of vaccinating more than 300,000 people a day in the country as Ramaphosa had set the number.
So far more than 7 million vaccines have been issued in the country.
