An Exploratory Look into Labour Market Regulation
AbstractThis paper welcomes the fact that the discussion about the labour market and small business has broadened in scope. It considers some of the suggestions made by Cheadle (2006) in his recent concept paper. These include dismissals, unfair labour practices, appointments and promotions and collective bargaining. It also suggests that other changes to our labour laws are necessary, including the need for a doctrine of equal pay for equivalent work, the regulation of labour broker arrangements and other atypical employees, and the manner in which terms and conditions of employment can be amended. Besides legislative amendments it argues against the demise of the Labour Court and for greater administrative and judicial efficiency in that court.
