28 Jun|Legislating the National Minimum Wage

How will the national minimum wage fit into our Labour Law?

The negotiations to introduce a national minimum wage are at an advanced stage at NEDLAC. Dr Shane Godfrey and Mario Jacobs, from the UCT Labour and Enterprise Policy Research Group (LEP), have followed the developments closely and are in the process of finalising a research paper that grapples with how the national minimum wage agreement can best be legislated. This considers questions of the national minimum wage’s relationship with existing laws, as well as the implications for sectoral determinations and bargaining council agreements. The structure of the legislation will have a strong impact on the success of the national minimum wage.
