The Department of Labour “ignored the letter or spirit of decisions taken by the Labour Portfolio Committee” when it came to processing the three labour laws recently passed by the National Assembly.

Parliament has passed the National Minimum Wage Bill together with the Basic Conditions of Employment Amendment Bill and the Labour Relations Amendment Bill. Most of the media is focusing on the minimum wage bill but the more draconian Labour Relations Bill is to offset monetary gains of workers and undermine the constitutional right to strike, writes EDDIE COTTLE.

A new Private Member’s Bill has been tabled by the DA’s TOBY CHANCE for the establishment of an Ombud service for small and medium enterprises. He tabled the Bill and has called for public comment in an effort to ensure that small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) get the backing they need to survive.
