UIF for Government Employees

Please help!
My sister has been dismissed from a government post which she has held loyally for 9 years. Her superviser lent her money from the department and is now denying that she has done this. Unfortunately my sister does not have proof of this in writing. Is there anything she can do to appeal? Does she have a legal leg to stand on?
Also, they have told her there is no UIF for government employees (there is nothing showing as a deduction on her payslip). Is this true? As far as I am aware, all employees have to be registered with the Unemployment Insurance Fund and have to pay 1% UIF whilst the employer pays the other 1%.
Please advise asap.

Thank you

Goverment employees does not pay UIF, so when a employee terminated his/her service by what ever way. The person will received her pension benefits. so no UIF fo goverment employees.
