THE COMMISSION for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) in Kimberley has confirmed that its offices have been close following a reported Covid-19 case.

The commission said the decision to close was made to ensure the  safety of their employees.

“Effective from July 29, 2020 the office will be temporarily closed. This urgent decision was taken in the interest of safeguarding the health and well-being of CCMA staff and users. During this time the offices will be disinfected and sanitised, ensuring that all health and safety regulations are complied with when the offices reopen,” it stated.

The commission said that details on cases will be communicated with clients.

“As a result, all cases that were scheduled for July 29 will be rescheduled. Management will communicate further on this issue when the offices reopen on July 30, 2020. However, cases scheduled for hearing in alternative venues outside of the office will proceed as normal,” it said.

The commission indicated that users could, in the meantime, make referrals and applications on digital platforms.

“Users may still make referrals and applications using the CCMA’s digital case referrals and applications platform. Users can also send case-related queries or refer disputes via email to the Kimberley Regional Office at [email protected] or by using the following facsimile number: 053- 831-5947/8,” they said.
