NKUNA Nomzamo from Tembisa in Ekurhuleni was working for a security company and was stationed at a butchery in Germiston.

The boss of the security company died and the guards were told to find jobs elsewhere.

Nkuna then registered her own security company. She asked the owner of the butchery to employ her and some of her colleagues. He agreed and they continued to work in their positions, but she said the owner forced her to prepare meat as well.

She said when she complained about being overworked and not being paid enough, he started to treat her badly. She wanted to know what legal options she had.


I spoke to Scorpion Legal Protection.


The legal advisor at Scorpion said there may be confusion regarding Nkuna’s employment.

She regards herself as an employee of the butchery while she is an independent contractor providing security services. The dispute is a contractual issue. She and the owner need to discuss what the terms of the contact between them are, what services she provides, and how much she will be paid.
