UIF not being Paid out

The people that work at the Department of Labour is Bellville are rude, unhelpful and shouldnt be dealing with people. I was sent home 3 times because they couldn't do their jobs right.

I do not know why money is being deducted for uif from MY SALARY when I can't claim for it.

I have sent in a complaint and no one bothered to reply. This is the service you get. TERRIBLE!

Department of Labour
City Pretoria
Customer name Queen Chatikobo
Reason for using getclosure! No one is willing to help me at department of Labour!
Nature of complaint I am unhappy withe thee service I received
Complaint description i SUBMITTED my documents for UIF Maternity at Department of Labour Germiston on thee 7the of December 2011. I got no feedback till i returned to work in April 2012.
I then send an email to Labour Head Office in Pretoria and they said they could not help me because i seem to have a South African ID so they can not pay under a passport. They told me to go and sort the issue with Home Affairs of which i went to Germiston and they refused to help me saying i shoud go back to Labour and the guys at Labour should give me the ID Number since they said i had one. I have since sent them an e-mail and no one responded back. Iam not happy because why is it that they didn't pick that up when i was contributing and now that i would like to claim they make my life difficult? I have been registered for UIF and everything else using my passport. If they check their records theey will find out theat it has been a passport all along and i have worked for the current company for 3 years and i use my passport. So why is it now they don't want to pay me? why don't they want to give me my money? Its so unfair!!!!! Why are they talking about an ID when i use only my passport? Why are they doing that? The people i have been corresponding with from Labour are Mr Thomas and Killian Hansen.
Proposed solution I would like you to refund me in full
Solution description I want them to give me my money. I have been paying that money and its rightfully mine!!
