The TERS regulations were amended on 16 April 2020. Essentially they have recognised that many employers have allowed employees to take annual leave during the lockdown. They are now allowing such employers to claim the TERS benefit and when the UIF payment is made to the Company to then credit the employee for the leave taken proportionately.
We are urging all employers who have applied to contact us. We have agreed with the Chief Inspector of UIF to be the communication hub for all our clients so that UIF has one point of contact if they have any queries. The process for queries is for them to issue compliance orders and we want to streamline this process as effectively as possible. If you want to be added to the list, please fill in the form below.
