Published On:Friday, September 25, 2015

From October 2015 it is unlawful for an employer to deduct money from an employees wages or to receive payment from an employee in regard to a work permit fee.

This means that even if you have a clause in your contract which permits such a deduction it will from October 2015 be void.

Employers must bear the whole cost of a work permit fee.
