What Is Short Time?

You can ask your employees to work for less hours or less days per week than they would normally. This means that you will also pay them less.

They will be able to claim from the UIF for the difference between what they used to earn and what they will earn now. The UIF formula of 38-60% of the UIF cap of R17 712 will be applied, and the Employees’ period of contributions to the UIF fund as well as the previous times they claimed from the fund will also be taken into account to determine what they will earn now.
