LRA 'may have devastating jobs impact' - Cape Times, Career Times
Written by: Staff Writer

 

THE recently amended Labour Relations Act (effective from January 2015) will have a devastating impact, not only on the national recruitment and staffing industry but also on the economy and the country's unemployment rate – which the act seeks to relieve- if it continues to be interpreted by some stakeholders in a narrow light. This is according to KC Makhubele, vice president of the Federation of African Professional Staffing Organisations (APSO), quoted in a recent Business Day article. He said the amendments to the act had caused uncertainty in the market and had been highlighted as likely to cost the country 254 000 jobs. He said: "The interpretation of and uncertainty surrounding these amendments has already resulted in the folding of a number of small to medium recruitment companies- a number of which are black owned-and as a result goes against the government's intention to support and grow black business." Makhubele said this major impact on the already strained job market had been revealed in APSO's interaction with its over 800 members.
