Introduction

Develop an understanding of the South African labour law landscape and stay abreast of changes in labour law to ensure compliance, both as an employer or employee.

South African labour law has evolved considerably in recent years, as acts are amended and employment equity becomes more prevalent. Understanding it is imperative to companies and individuals looking to avoid labour disputes.

Knowledge of legal frameworks, relevant labour laws, and dispute resolution techniques are hugely beneficial for employers, legal practitioners, human resource professionals, and business owners alike. Understand your employee rights and learn to make informed decisions in the workplace with this labour and employment law course from UCT.
