The African Christian Democratic Party said the private sector employers face real challenges and has called on government to tighten legislation to non-compliance with employment equity.

ACDP MP Cheryllyn Dudley said government’s focus this year needs to be violent strikes and review of minimum wages to address poverty and inequality. 

Dudley said Minister Oliphant said the top priorities for 2014 include amendments to labour legislation, to give certainty to policy, expanding protection for vulnerable workers and ensuring faster change in employment equity in workplaces.

“Labour laws under parliamentary scrutiny include the Labour Relations Act and the new Employment Services Bill.

Last year employment levels reached 14 million in the third quarter and the NDP target is for 2.8-million new jobs to be created by 2015, or total employment at 15.8-million.” Dudley concluded.
