About this Publication:

First published in 1996, Workplace Law has become one of the most widely used and frequently quoted text books on South African labour law. This 12th edition has been revised and supplemented to incorporate the latest case law, as well as the latest amendments to labour legislation.

Workplace Law provides a complete overview of issues that have arisen and are likely to arise on the shop floor, in court and in arbitration proceedings – from unfair labour practices, through employment equity, dismissal and collective bargaining, to strikes. This updated, comprehensive and reliable work is a convenient and indispensable guide to a complex and fascinating area of law.

Workplace Law is also available in electronic form as part of Juta’s Labour Library, where it is updated quarterly.
