Over the past two years the proposed amendments to the Labour Relations Act have been discussed in detail. This past Sunday, 17 August 2014, President Zuma signed the amendments into law.
The effective date must still be published and we will inform you as soon as a date is declared. All companies will have a three month grace period in which to ensure that they comply with the new amendments.
LabourNet will host another round of workshops on these amendments. Please contact your local branch or the LabourNet Head Office for further information on these seminars.
If you are already a valued LabourNet client, please contact your consultant for any assistance or advice.
An important note, the amendments to the Basic Conditions of Employment Act is awaiting a promulgation date, where after the President will also have to sign it into law. We anticipate that this will happen within the next two months.
We will keep you informed on these developments.
