Labour snip

On September 18, Werksmans and guest speaker Advocate Anton Myburgh SC presented a labour seminar which looked at the year 2014 in the context of protracted strikes – particularly in the mining industry – the Employment Equity Amendment Act 47 of 2013, which came into effect on 1 August 2014, and aspects of the Labour Relations Act.

Some of the issues discussed included the following:

  • When is equal pay appropriate for equal work?
  • Do our Courts actually have more to say on the topic of section 197?
  • Taking a new approach on the right to strike in the context of recent protracted strike action in the mining industry
