WHITE PAPER: A COMPARISON OF LABOUR LAWS WORLDWIDE, THEIR IMPACT ON THE GLOBAL WORKFORCE AND SOUTH AFRICA’S LABOUR LAW DISPOSITION


The Federation of African Professional Staffing Organisations (APSO) has set out to identify the differences in labour and employment laws across the globe. This white paper pays particular attention to South Africa’s labour law disposition, specific temporary labour considerations, and the often unintended consequences of these laws on not only the South African workforce, but also the perception of “red-tape” holding the country back in terms of global competitiveness and foreign investment.


Factors such as contractual agreements, benefits, maximum working hours and the protection of vulnerable groups - such as children - from exploitation, are common labour law considerations of regions across the world. Regulations which are specific to temporary labour, on the other hand, differ in terms of the requirements for organisations to utilise a temporary workforce, the maximum length of temporary contracts and the benefits temporary labourers are entitled to.
