Labour Law

Your Labour Law Experts in South Africa

We are currently facing turmoil in South Africa regarding the undeniable impact of the third wave of COVID-19 being spread like a wildfire throughout this country. Lockdown restrictions are also currently enforced, limiting several industries and workplaces in terms of capacity, attendance, and morale. On top of that, riots and looting are plaguing several provinces as a result of political unrest and conflict. These elements create uncertainty in the workplace and unrest among employees and employers alike. Luckily, Allardyce & Partners Attorneys can assist you in legal matters regarding Labour and Employment Law in South Africa.

The Impact of COVID-19 in the Workplace

Aside from the obvious, COVID-19 has brought unprecedented legal disputes to the legal domain. Recently, a Labour Court case ruled in favour of an employer who dismissed an employee who, knowingly, attended work while recently being tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. Does this ruling create a precedent for other employers in South Africa to do the same to employees who attend work while consciously being COVID-19 positive? This is where our Labour and Employment Law specialists can shine a light on the situation in case you find yourself in a similar dispute.

South Africa’s Department of Education is also insisting that every teacher should be vaccinated, despite the uncertainties and proven negative influences on physical and mental health that could occur from being vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine. Should a teacher refuse to be vaccinated, they are at risk of dismissal, according to the Department of Education. To add to all the chaos, South Africa has some of the most progressive Labour and Employment Law systems in the world, making it exceedingly difficult to truly comprehend.
