"Can a foreigner on a work visa violate his visa?"
We have a foreigner director on a South African work visa who is currently breaking several South African Larbour Laws. I wish to report it further up the authority chain to inform my company about the financial implications. However can this director loose his work visa if he is found guilty of Larbour laws such as racial discrimination, unlawful salary deductions, and abuse at work place? Or will he or the company just receive fines?
I don`t think the actions you / the company takes will have any impact on his visa unless if the visa was specifically issued for the Director to work for this company only (conditional). If not, then the company will have to consider the actions of the Director and take remedial actions.
The one way to hire a foreign national who doesn't have the right papers...
If you knowingly employ a foreign worker, who doesn’t have the right papers or has entered into the country illegally you’re committing a criminal offence. You’ll face fines and/or imprisonment. Plus you’re legally required to check the status or citizenship of all the employees in your organisation? This is just one of your obligations as an employer outlined by Immigration Act.
