Course Name
C5 - Latest amendments to Labour Legislation
Course Description
The latest amendments to the Labour Laws in South Africa have been published and implemented. These amendments still provide challenges to employers and the implementation of many of them have not been tested properly in court. These amendments embody the biggest drive to recognise employees as human capital and not as a commodity any more, regulating inter alia the labour broker relationship and temporary employment contracts, concentrating on vulnerable employees. This presentation is designed to provide employers with a synopsis of the amendments, and new Act, equipping them with enough information to plan ahead and not be caught off guard by these comprehensive amendments.
