No Ban for Labour Brokers

| News by Staff Reporter

But the industry will be regulated

Cabinet has approved the Basic Conditions of Employment Amendment Bill and the Labour Relations Amendment Bill without caving to Cosatuís demands of banning labour brokers.

According to Minister of Labour Mildred Oliphant government had implemented the African National Congressís (ANC) resolutions on the issue of banning labour brokers but not those of Cosatu (Congress of SA Trade Unions).

She was speaking at a post-Cabinet briefing on Thursday 22 March.

Instead of banning labour brokers, she said, the legislation would be aimed at preventing the abuse that has been associated with labour broking.

This would be achieved in part by limiting temporary employment to six months, said Oliphant.

The legislature would now go to Parliament.
