Case Law Update
The National Minimum Wage Act became effective on 1 January 2019 and four new labour law amendments are due for approval in the short to medium term. The Constitutional Court’s recent reinstatement of 44 Woolworths employees, shows that case decisions have a powerful effect on labour law. What was lawful just last week, may be unlawful this week due to a decision laid down in the labour dispute system.
During this seminar we will:
- Gain understanding of the significance of the key amendments under the National Minimum Wage Act, Basic Conditions of Employment Act, Labour Relations Act and Labour Act Amendment Bill.
Analyse recent case law on the meaning and significance for employers of:
- the Constitutional Court’s reinstatement of 44 Woolworths employees
- the Constitutional Court’s dagga decision
- the Constitutional Court’s Assign Services decision relating to the use of labour brokers

- the Labour Court’s decision on the dismissal of employees refusing to change their terms and conditions of employment
