THE office of the minister of Justice has approved the appointment of 13 Human Resource (HR) professionals of the Central University of Technology (CUT) to serve as Commissioners of Oaths.

The announcement of the team of professionals was made on Thursday (19/05).

Those appointed of the CUT are Esther Palmer, Jacques Taljaard, Sandiswa Mxenge, Deseré Kok, Matshidiso Naong, Crispen Chipunza, Lineo Dzansi, Fred van der Walt, Xcy Rathaba and Malefane Thasi. Dan Maritz, CUT spokesperson, said the office of the minister of Justice had delegated a member of the South African Board for People Practices (SABPP), Marius Meyer, to conduct the ceremony.

Maritz said certain HR professionals registered with the SABPP may now administer oaths or affirmations.

These include those with masters and chartered qualifications in HR.

“They can take solemn or attested declarations and certify documents to be a true copy of the original.

“This is all done in accordance with the Justices of Peace and Commissioners of Oaths Act (no. 63 of 1963),” Maritz said.

The status of Commissioner of Oaths further highlights the important role of HR professionals in meeting the HR competency requirement in HR governance, risk and compliance and striving towards achieving the national standard in HR risk management. Designating SABPP HR professionals to become Commissioners of Oath will yield benefits for the country.

Maritz said the workload of current Commissioners of Oaths, such as police officers and accountants, would be reduced.

The team of HR professionals will be in a position to support the government and law enforcement agencies to combat fraud and corruption in areas where HR can add value, such as identity fraud and forged qualifications certificates.

Maritz indicated that the HR professionals were custodians of a multitude of labour and other laws.

Therefore, like accountants, function as compliance officers in the workplace.
