The employees were evacuated from their offices in the Joburg CBD after the Bank of Lisbon building caught fire last month. The September 5 fire led to the deaths of three firefighters.
Following the fire, government employees who were also subjected to working in other unsafe buildings revolted and took to the streets.
The provincial government then announced that it would be shutting down seven other uninhabitable buildings that various departments used around the city.
This week, Gauteng provincial spokesperson Thabo Masebe confirmed there were still employees who were still not accommodated in any other offices and were therefore forced to stay at home.
