Question posted in the General Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal

Good day, my domestic worker has been AWOL since the 28th of December, I have tried phoning her cell number and her boysfriends cell number, they don't answer. I have messaged her and boyfriends cell number, she refuses to answer me. I spoke to her mom and sister and they say that she is with her boyfriend, I don't know what do do, I'm extremely upset, she received a 80% bonus before Xmas. I've asked her to message me and have the decency to let me know that she is not coming back but I have been ignored. I want to officially dismiss her, she has no contract and does not even have an ID book.
