Labour Law Amendments Are Devastating!

Business Brief

The newly amended Labour Relations Act (effective since 1 January 2015) are having  devastating impact not only on the national recruitment and staffing industry but also on the national country’s unemployment rate – which the act itself seeks to relive – if they continue to be interpreted by some stakeholders in a narrow light.

Amendments cause uncertainty

The amendments to the act have caused uncertainty in the market and has been highlighted as likely to cost the country 254 000 jobs. The interpretation of and uncertainty surrounding these amendments has already resulted in the folding of a number of small to medium sized recruitment companies – a number of which are Black-owned – and as a result, goes against government’s intention to support and grow Black business.

In compliance with the Labour Relations Amendments Act, No 6 of 2014 (LRAA) -  which aims to streamline the country’s labour environment and protect vulnerable workers – South African businesses are required to adjust the way in which they have traditionally employed and managed staff in their organisations.
