Huawei South Africa employed 90% foreigners in South Africa.

Huawei Technologies has about 90% foreign nationals at its South Africa unit, including top management officials.

South Africa has asked a court to fine the local unit of China’s Huawei Technologies for allegedly breaking rules on hiring locals and to order the company to amend its practices, the labour department said on Friday.

Approximately 90% of the company’s employees were foreign nationals, violating “employment equity” regulations which impose a limit of 40%, the department said, citing a 2020 audit.

The department said it had filed court papers seeking a fine of R1.5-million  or 2% of the local firm’s annual 2020 turnover for the alleged rule breaches.
