South Africa has a rich history, some being not a pleasant time to remember about past injustices and unfair business and labour practices. Today, the South African government and the Department of Labour are continually reviewing and adjusting South African employment laws in an effort to correct past injustices and offer previously disenfranchised communities and members of society the foot up they need in order to get ahead in society. That is where various initiatives such as Affirmative Action and Employment Equity comes in.
In the past, many companies found it difficult to keep up to date and fully compliant with the latest labour laws and regulations due to it changing so regularly. This gave way to an entire new industry of companies offering expert labour law advice about compliance and adherence in regards with employment equity and a myriad of other aspects such as training Human Resource departments in everything from Discipline and Dismissal, Conditions of Employment, Occupational injuries and diseases in the workplace, Recruitment, Retrenchment and OHS Act and Regulations courses and many, many other aspects relevant to South African employment.
When you consider the fines and penalties associated with noncompliance to aspects of South African employment legislation and regulations such as in the case of EE, companies can be fined up to R500 000. This is definitely incentive for companies to invest in the training and development of their Human Resource departments, enabling them effectively to ensure the company complies with all relevant local and national laws and regulations.
