2021 Labour Law Update


July 2021 - Over the past month, various intriguing and ground-breaking developments affected everyone’s lives and work situations. From processing one’s personal information (POPIA) to having South Africans glued to TV screens watching how contempt proceedings unfold before our very own eyes.

These events have led us to question our role within the workplace, society, and law. Have the powers of the judiciary been compromised, and what is the way forward?

What do the changes mean for us as employees, employers and human resources representatives, and what should we be mindful of as we navigate these new developments?

Join labour law experts Andrew Goldberg and Dr JJ van der Walt as they present a labour law update and other significant changes that affect you.
