      Dear Colleagues The attached circular is profound!

      In short, the circular advises that even though SETAs have to pay a mandatory grant to employers,it is no longer 20%. The percentage paid is at the discretion of the SETAs(See points 16-19)It could be less or more.I presume we will have to wait and see what each SETA decides on.

      Hi Louis,
      Thank you for posting this notice. Yes it does have profound implications – one springs to mind:
      – the potential for chaotic differences across SETAs, which may possibly represent contravention of our constitutional right for fair administrative action – under the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act – PAJA.

      I am sure that we will receive a statement from BUSA on their response.

      In the meanwhile, I will attempt to access a copy of the judgment.

      Hi All

      This is interesting. I wonder when will it implemented even though the circular indicates wef. I doubt it as the Setas have not yet implemented the “certified copies” period from 3 to 6 months as announced by the President on the 18th Nov. My colleague was turned away last week by the MICT. Their response was that they are waiting for a go ahead from the DHET.

      What can I say. once again the employers are being fleeced and what was a relatively good situation has now become a nightmare. Why should companies continue to pay the levies?? Is it time for mass action.

      Will this be the end of workplace skills interventions?

      I find this quite disgusting to say the least.

      Our member Menet Hamel who is also an ASDSA member has promised to advise the ASDSA members when BUSA have prepared a response. I will share with skills-universe when I receive it.
