Re: Medical Certificate from Traditional Healers Hospital

It is not valid in terms of section 23 of the BCEA. The practitioner must be registered with a statutory council in terms of legislation. At this stage there is a partially proclaimed Act and a council that is not functional. PS. The association is not the Council established in terms of the Traditi...

Re: Monthly contract

If you have clearly stipulated your operational requirements (the dilemma you are facing) in the temporary contract of employment and you can justify such requirements, then reasonable expectation of another contract or indefinite employment will be difficult to prove.

To make a long story short, the traditional health practitioners council is not fully functional. As such, there are no registered traditional healers at this point in time, as defined in the basic conditions of employment act.

Generally employees do not have the right to refuse to perform their duties in other areas, provided that such a change in location does not constitute a unilateral change to the employment conditions of the employee.

Re: Medical certificates from Nurses

Only medical certificates signed by authorised nursing staff government and municipal clinics may be acceptable if it conforms to the other requirements set out in section 23 of the BCEA. I am not convinced that the certificate you have in your possession will constitute a valid medical certificate.
