HOW TO SET UP IN CAPE TOWN
South Africa’s labour market transformed since 1994, with an emphasis on strategies that eliminate labour inequalities of the past and improve general working conditions for all South Africans.
The most notable pieces of legislation which aim to strengthen the labour market include:
- the Labour Relations Act (LRA);
- the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA);
- the Employment Equity Act (EEA);
- and the Skills Development Act (SDA).
Legislation is supported by codes of good practice, issued by the Department of Labour. Occupational health and workplace safety is also closely regulated.
