22 August 2018 Employment Alert

Labour Bills move another step closer to becoming law

Our previous Employment Alert (released on 13 August 2018) discussed four Labour Bills that were tabled in Parliament in 2017. Viewed collectively, the Labour Bills will introduce new law (eg parental leave) and change existing law (eg mechanisms for dispute resolution).

On 21 August 2018, the Labour Bills were considered and passed by the National Council of Provinces. The Bills will now be formally submitted to the President of the Republic of South Africa for final assent and signature.

Once signed by the president, the Bills will become law in South Africa. The Bills will then be placed in the Government Gazette and will come into operation on the Commencement Date as stipulated in the legislation.
