Employment Act Changes: Implications and Uncertainties

(2019) 31 SAcLJ 316

However, the latest introduced in November 2018 are probably the most significant in many ways. While the latest amendments have brought about significant changes, the focus of this comment will be on issues relating to the termination of the employment contract, particularly wrongful dismissal.
