Labour Act

​Court Rejects Labour Amendments

Despite losing a bid to have the Labour Relations Act amended, the Free Market Foundation has welcomed the clarification provided by the Gauteng high court ruling on the matter.
 
The three-year-long court battle was brought against ministers of labour and justice and constitutional development as well as 47 bargaining councils and challenged section 32 of the Labour Relations Act.
 

NGO Tackles Act for Being Unconstitutional

A full bench of the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria has reserved judgment in a constitutional challenge by the Free Market Foundation (FMF) to Section 32 of the Labour Relations Act, which it blames for the country’s unemployment rate.

The FMF took Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant, the Congress of South African Trade Unions and 23 bargaining councils to court to have the section of the Act– which compels the labour minister to extend bargaining council agreements across entire industry sectors, subject to representivity conditions - declared unconstitutional.
