The one thing EVERY HR professional in South Africa NEEDS to stay up to date with how the latest changes to the BCEA, EEA and LRA affect your company
Dealing with your employees can be confusing, frustrating and daunting at the best of times. From recruiting to disciplinary hearings, performance management
, maternity leave and more, the work of an HR professional never ends.
But if there's one thing I'm sure about, it's this: All those issues are going to seem like a walk in the park compared to what you will face this year.
Because not only will you have to put up with every day HR headaches, you now have to make sure every action your management team takes is 100% up to speed with the 70 plus labour Act changes that came into law this past year.
Here's how to make sure you know exactly what you need to do stay complaint.
An employee can show any of the following factors present:
· You control or direct his work;
· You control or direct his hours of work;
· If he works for an organisation, that he's part of that organisation;
· He works for you for an average of 40 hours per month (in the last three months);
· He's economically dependent on you and your business;
· You provide with tools of trade or work equipment; or
· He only works for, or renders services to, you.
Note that The Code of Good Practice
also deals with various court cases referring to the above-mentioned distinction of who is an employee or not.
