Three labour officials from the Eastern Cape provincial office have been suspended for allegedly processing fake Unemployment Insurance Fund applications.

Photocopy identity documents and banking details, and false claims by ghost employers, are some of the risks that the Fund face in dealing with fake claims.

Labour department Director General Nkosinathi Nhleko said through the helpline people are able to report issues.

Nhleko added that by people reporting issues such as fraud it allows the department to follow through on issues.

The matter was handed to the police for further investigation.
