PROPOSED MINIMUM WAGE (UPDATE):
1. As a follow- up to our previous Channel Chats relating the above subject matter, the following refers:
NO NATIONAL MINIMUM WAGE ON 1 MAY 2018, BUT DELAY ‘NECESSARY’
The agreement to postpone the May 1 implementation of the national minimum wage was long overdue, stakeholders said on Thursday.
Earlier this week stakeholders raised the alarm, warning that the bill was being rushed through Parliament and that it would result in legislation facing an onslaught of “winnable court challenges”.
On Thursday, the acting chairwoman of the portfolio committee on labour, Sharome van Schalkwyk, agreed to proposals that the May 1 deadline set for the minimum wage implementation be pushed back to allow MPs time to consider more than 40 public submissions received on the draft legislation.
Members of the labour committee have committed to return to Parliament a week early from their Easter recess to deal with the legislation.
2. We will keep you posted regarding the above as the matter progresses.
Thank you for the trust that you continue to place in us, as our valued Client we look forward to an ongoing long and mutually beneficial relationship.
