The Department of Labour in Western Cape has warned communities no to fall in the trap of ghost companies operating in the Cape Metro Region.

The fictitious companies reportedly demand R50 from work seekers in exchange for job offers. The department’s provincial executive manager, Teboho Thejane said yesterday, these acts of exploiting the vulnerable would not be tolerated and the department would work closely with the police in identifying the culprits and have them brought to book.

In order to verify a company’s legitimacy, members of the public are urged to report such incidents and submit its details to either nearest police or Labour Department offices.
