Labour Law Rules 4th Ed

This is a thoroughly revised new book, building on the foundations of the first three editions, but expanded and updated to meet the needs of the students using it. The fourth edition has: " an additional chapter on Strikes and Lockouts " expanded content on social security and occupational health " a new chapter on additional legislation such as Rica, Popi, ESA, ETIA, PEPUDA, PDA etc " the law updated to September 2020 This well-established labour law text has been updated to reflect the law as of September 2020. Labour Law Rules provides an accessible and clear discussion of all relevant labour, employment equity, social security and related legislation. The book brings law and practice together. The text is supplemented with visual aids, examples and case law to clarify concepts. The book is aimed principally at students who engage with labour law for the first time during their BCom and LLB studies. The book will also be helpful for HR and IR personnel, project managers, supervisors and union officials. The contents are divided into four parts discussing individual labour law, collective labour law, social security law and other labour laws. The common law contract of employment is the basis of the relationship. The book explains how the Constitution, the BCEA, the NMWA, the LRA as well as the EEA supplement the relationship. The legal protection afforded to employees, including non-standard employees, is clarified. Dismissal, unfair labour practices, discrimination, harassment and the impact of transfers of a business on employers and employees alike are explained with reference to recent statutory and case developments. The book includes an analysis of collective labour law. Aspects such as collective bargaining, collective agreements, bargaining agents (for example, trade unions) and workplace forums are covered. The legal requirements for protected strikes, lock-outs, picketing and protest action are dissected and explained with reference to case law and practical examples. An important aspect of labour law that is often overlooked in the academic context is social security measures that impact on the workplace. The book covers the OHSA, MHSA, COIDA and UIA. The book concludes with an overview of so-called non-core labour legislation such as the Employment Services Act, the Skills Development Act, the Employment Tax Incentive Act, the Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of CommunicationsRelated Information Act and the Protection of Personal Information Act. Additional recommended reading is provided in a separate annexure for the keen reader. This book not only reflects on the rules of labour law but also shows that labour law, in the modern workplace, rules!
