Department of Labour warns of conman masquerading as labour inspector in KwaZulu-Natal

Media Statement: Department of Labour

 

The Department of Labour cautions employers, stakeholders and members of the public of a conman masquerading as a labour inspector who subsequently conducts impromptu inspections and requests monies to be transferred into his account.

 

The warning follows a complaint this week by an employer in Howick, in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, who says the man showed up at her workplace to conduct a spot inspection and check on employees. The man claimed things were not in order and requested an amount of money to be deposited into an account. The complainant became suspicious and contacted the Department, which confirmed the man did not work for the Department.

 

The Department categorically states that this is nothing more than a scam by an opportunistic swindler intent on fleecing the unsuspecting. All employers, stakeholders and members of the public are strongly warned of this scam and urged to contact their nearest labour centre to verify any inspectors' credentials.

 

Labour inspectors always carry their identity cards, which bears their details and photo and the card is produced prior to the inspection.

 

The Department of Labour is working in conjunction with the police and will leave no stone unturned to ensure that this fraudster is brought to justice and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
