At present a new Labour Relations Act has been passed, but has not been brought into force. It is expected to become effective from 1 May 1996. When it does it will have far reaching implications for employers and employees. The new Act makes serious inroads into managerial prerogative and strengthens the power of the Trade Unions.
This is a difficult and specialised field of law, and clients are strongly advised to obtain expert advice in this regard before entering into any transactions or starting any enterprise.
