Responding to Labour Broking Within The Labour Acts
The purpose of the amendments to the legislation is to respond to the growth of informalisation of work in the South African labour market and, in particular, to align the BCEA with the LRA in addressing the phenomenon of labour broking. The amendments also serve to bring the provisions regulating child labour in line with international standards and to strengthen the mechanisms for enforcement of basic conditions of employment, including minimum wages. The proposed amendments also include new provisions relating to fixed term contracts and part-time employment.
Will The Labour Act Amendments Impact Your Company
Patel notes, The remaining labour legislation amendments - the Employment Equity Amendment Bill and the Employment Services Bill - as well as the passing of the legislation will be considered in due course.
The time is now ripe for companies to commence considering the impact of these amendments on their businesses.
