No wages paid

I have joined the company in March as a Ops Manager. My boss still have not given me a probation or temp contract even though he said he will. We agreed that he will pay me every two weeks. But it is now the second time that I have to literally beg for my wages. He has not paid me for the last 3 weeks and if I ask him for my wages he gets aggressive and verbally abusive telling me that I should request my wage a week in advance. Or he totally ignores my request and humiliate me in front of other staff and customers. He takes UIF from the other staff (not from me) but I have not seen any written proof that he actually pay it over to Dep of Labour. What should I do?

re: No Wages Paid

You in fact are entitled by law to have a contract of employment.  You need to report this to the Department of Labour.
Once you have a contract then you would have a specific date on which you get paid.
If you have doubts about the UIF again you need to contact the Department of Labour.

You can contact the Department of Labour in regards to the non-payment of wages. You can also ask the Department of Labour to investigate if he pays the UIF over that was deducted.
