Get to work on unemployment

Volume: Volume 4(1) - 2000

Article type: Refereed article

Author/s: Calitz, Karen, Brenda Grant, Barry Shipman and Esther van Kerken

Measuring the unemployment insurance system in South Africa against international standards, the authors consider whether the unemployment legislation should be to provide only for the risk of losing employment, or whether it should also aim to combat unemployment. The article further examines specific aspects of unemployment insurance provision such as the administration and funding of the unemployment insurance system, the calculation of benefits, the contingencies covered and the categories of persons who may be entitled to claim unemployment benefits.
