Clamp down on employers hiring undocumented migrants

The Justice, Crime Prevention and Security cluster briefed the media on Sunday, where Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba added that 147 undocumented migrants had been arrested. “We raided two Spar retail outlets, a hotel, panelbeating shops and garages, shops owned by foreign nationals and a number of institutions.

Most of the foreign-owned shops inspected did not comply with the 60%/40% ratio [of employment] as they employed only foreign nationals in possession of asylum-seeker permits,” Gigaba said. He went on to say that migrants were being exploited by ruthless employers looking to flout labour laws and that the DHA would be punishing employers who employed those with illegal documents “as they are infringing on the Immigration Act and the new visa regulations that were promulgated in 2014.”
