Do medical certificates issued by traditional healers have to be accepted by employers? While there does not appear to be an obligation to do so at present, indications are that it will be soon become a reality.

  1. What about a Clinic letter. Is that acceptable to claim “sick leave”

    1. Author

      A clinic letter does not have to be accepted as proof of incapacity, unless it has been issued and signed by a medical practitioner or other person who is certified to diagnose and treat patients and who is registered with a professional council established by an Act of Parliament.

  2. I m totally against this new development in our labour law. Pastors, Sangoma, Inyanda, Prophets etc, they cant…yes…they cant HEAL sick people. People who rely wholey on invisible things like ancestral spirits or any other type of spirits “for healing” or do “perform their work – miracles”, will be difficult to be held accountable through legislative powers or by the government of the day.

  3. in case where traditional healers will be considered is there any chance that prophets and priests medical certificates wil also be considered as they also heal people?
