Amendments to the Labour Relations Act (LRA) will take effect 1 October 2014.
A critical aspect of the amendment stipulates that employers can no longer employee workers on a contractual or temporary basis. SARPBAC is expected to align with the amended LRA, and will advise of required adjustments.
In addition to clauses relevant to Bargaining Councils, the following clauses are of particular interest to members:
Clause 4, S32
Clause 5, S49
Clause 19, S143
Clause 22, S145
Clause 37, S198 (entire)
