As a result of our political heritage, South Africa has arguably one of the more complex international labour law systems. Its framework is structured on basic equity principles, strong regulatory compliance, effective management of labour issues and the protection of employee rights. It is of paramount importance that all businesses understand and manage their employment relations recognising these enactments and in full compliance thereto.
