Circumstances Under Which You Cannot Claim UIF


In a previous post we mentioned that www.labour.gov.za informs us that if one quits their job, they are prohibited from claiming UIF (Unemployment Insurance Fund).  The following is taken directly from the UIF page on the Department of Labour’s website; I do find it interesting that in this particular context, rather than resigning you are better off getting fired.

You cannot claim if you get –
  • benefits from the Compensation Fund;
  • benefits from an unemployment fund under the Labour Relations Act;
  • or if they –
  • are suspended from claiming because of fraud;
  • quit their job;
  • do not report at set dates and times; or
  • refuse training and advice.
Workers can claim if their –
  • employers are bankrupt;
  • contracts are ended; or if they
  • are fired.
