@willem g I'm sorry, I was giving you information for a business in the United States. I'm not sure how to do it in Johanesburg, South Africa.

Hello, Willem!

 

All of the data for a specific kind of business that is registered has to in term of the Labour Relations Act make their data available to their local municipality.  

 

At this stage, the only place where you would that information then is Johannesburg's municipality.  There are rules and regulations governing the data, so I am not sure how easy it will be.
