Labour Relations refers to the relationship between employers and employees in industry, and the political decisions and laws that affect it.

The relationship between the employer and the employee is based on mutual respect and should be a mutually beneficial relationship. Clear rules and guidelines ensure that friction and misunderstandings are kept under control, which in turn promotes not only productivity but also a positive working environment.

The Labour Relation Act (LRA) remains the principal labour statute and regulates collective rights and also provides protection against labour practices. The LRA regulates trade unions and employers’ organisations and establishes key dispute resolution agencies in the form of the CCMA and labour courts.
