Online System for Minimum Wage Exemptions Under Construction

Department of Labour

An online system is being developed to analyse data submitted by employers when applying for National Minimum Wage (NMW) exemptions.

In a statement, the labour department warned employers of serious consequences should facts be misrepresented.

The department also pointed out that, once the NMW was in place, wages above the NMW will be increased via collective bargaining.

Meanwhile, the department has, in Government Gazette 41432, called for comment on the Bargaining Council for the Contract Cleaning Services Industry (Kwazulu-Natal)'s application to extend its main collective agreement to non-parties.

The application was submitted on 14 December 2017.

Representations are invited within 21 days of the date of publication.
