Phat Joe wins CCMA case against his domestic worker, Nontembiso Vumazonke. According to a local publication the case was dismissed on Friday. Nontembiso earlier in the year took the Metro FM DJ to CCMA claiming unfair dismissal.
“It’s just a relief. The matter became a serious PR and smear campaign that threatened to overshadow everything but I followed the rules and it’s finally good to have relief”, Phat Joe told the publication.
Despite having been taken to CCMA, Phat Joe says SA Domestic Service and Allied Workers’ Union (SADSAWU) took advantage of Nontembiso.
“They used her and our situation as a rallying cry. I had a great relationship with her. I even offered to help her find work but after the smear campaign against me it has become difficult to speak to her.”
