Publisher’s summary:

"Employment Rights forms one volume of a quartet by the author, which together covers the entire field of labour law as it has developed in South Africa to date. This volume deals with relations between employers and employees from the commencement of employment to its termination, and highlights the drastic inroads which have been made on the managerial prerogative by legislation, in particular the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, the Labour Relations Act and the Employment Equity Act. The reader will find detailed discussion of the employment contract, unfair labour practices, unfair discrimination and affirmative action, unemployment insurance and skills development. The book is written in the clear and readable style for which the author has become acclaimed, and each topic is copiously illustrated with examples drawn from the case law."
