Please excuse my ignorance, however need advice on the following:
My worker (cleaner) at home works on average 60 hours per week and we have never had a contract with her. She nor I have been paying UIF either.
She is now pregnant and is due in February but wants to go on maternity leave now and is demanding that I pay her maternity leave pay. I know that this is not compulsory however fear that she may go to the CCMA about this and the UIF situation as she would like to claim UIF whilst on maternity leave.
I obviously want to protect myself, however would like to assist her.
What do I do about the UIF situation and if she takes me to the CCMA about this?
