NEWSWATCH: Hlaudi Motsoeneng, acting chief operating officer of the debt-crippled SABC, has apparently issued an order that freelance staff be converted to fulltime employees, reports IOL. So, with his organisation already short of money, and by some reports, overstaffed, he plans to add to the wage bill?
If the report is accurate then Motsoeneng is surely making a decision that is going to add massive extra costs to the cash-strapped organisation. It also appears from the report that "employees will work a minimum of 24 hours and a maximum of 32 hours a week, even though the law requires them to work a minimum 40 hours a week".
