This now well established labour law text has been updated to reflect the law as of September 2017.
Labour Law Rules has provided a highly accessible text on labour, equity, social security and skills development laws over many years. It discusses these laws against a background of the country supporting the principle of ‘decent work,’ high unemployment, the insufficient creation of sustainable and decent jobs, and income inequality, all exacerbated by an increase in atypical work, skills shortages, as well as insufficient enforcement of laws.
Shaping markets through competition and economic regulation is at the heart of addressing the development challenges facing countries in southern Africa. The contributors to Competition Law And Economic Regulation: Addressing Market Power In Southern Africa critically assess the efficacy of the competition and economic regulation frameworks, including the impact of a number of the regional competition authorities in a range of sectors throughout southern Africa.
Featuring academics as well as practitioners in the field, the book addresses issues common to southern African countries, where markets are small and concentrated, with particularly high barriers to entry, and where the resources to enforce legislation against anti-competitive conduct are limited. What is needed, the contributors argue, is an understanding of competition and regional integration as part of an inclusive growth agenda for Africa. By examining competition and regulation in a single framework, and viewing this within the southern African experience, this volume adds new perspectives to the global competition literature.
It is an essential reference tool and will be of great interest to policymakers and regulators, as well as the rapidly growing ecosystem of legal practitioners and economists engaged in the field.
South Africa has become a nation defined by its protests. Protests can, and do, bring societal problems to public attention in direct, at times dramatic, ways. But governments the world over are also tempted to suppress this right, as they often feel threatened by public challenges to their authority. Apartheid South Africa had a shameful history of repressing protests. The architects of the country's democracy expressed a determination to break with this past and recognise protest as a basic democratic right. Yet, today, there is concern about the violent nature of protests.
Protest Nation challenges the dominant narrative that it has become necessary for the state to step in to limit the right to protest in the broader public interest because media and official representations have created a public perception that violence has become endemic to protests. Bringing together data gathered from municipalities, the police, protestor and activist interviews, as well as media reports, the book analyses the extent to which the right to protest is respected in democratic South Africa. It throws a spotlight on the municipal role in enabling or mostly thwarting the right.
This book is a call to action to defend the right to protest: a right that is clearly under threat. It also urges South Africans to critique the often-skewed public discourses that inform debates about protests and their limitations.
The seventeenth edition of Accounting Standards introduces students to the principles of the International Financial Reporting Standards.
Changes brought about by new and revised standards have once again been incorporated in this latest edition, mainly relating to the new IFRS 16 on leases. The accounting principles are illustrated through questions that gradually increase in their degree of difficulty. This approach facilitates the students’ understanding of these principles and allows them to get to grips with financial statements in a practical manner.
This edition of Accounting Standards is intended to satisfy the students’ requirements while at the same time reducing the lecturers’ workload.
Labour Relations in South Africa provides a thorough, engaging introduction to the science and practice of labour relations in South Africa. The fifth edition presents a more critical and reflective approach, engaging with the various issues, shifts, and seismic events which have impacted this dynamic field in recent years. The text's view is expanded to encompass a multi-faceted perspective, relating to business science, law, economics, and sociology, and to focus more specifically on the context and dynamics of a developing country.
A proper grasp of the law of insolvency can be acquired only by reading and digesting a sizeable volume of case law. This text, designed to complement Hockly's Insolvency Law, allows students and practitioners to come to terms with a broad range of insolvency cases.
In 1991 the Joint Building Contracts Committee - JBCC - published the JBCC Principal Building Agreement and its associated documents. This work's predecessor was published a few months later as a commentary on the new Agreement. However, the JBCC has since published a far-reaching revision of the 1991 documents, which it has designated as 'Series 2000'. This book is not merely an update of the previous work, but rather a new approach to the subject. This publication contains a detailed examination of the building process and the contractual relationship between the employer and his agents on the one hand, and the contractor and his subcontractors on the other, together with a consideration of the traditional and conventional ways of structuring and managing this relationship.
South Africa's pioneer and foremost thinker and voice on Black Economic Advancement, Phinda Mzwakhe Madi, is back with a bang. His first book, Affirmative Action in Corporate South Africa, triggered the first wave of Affirmative Action programmes in the country. His follow up book, Black Economic Empowerment in the New South Africa, led to the formation of the BEE Commission and eventually the creation of the country's policy and codes of good practice. Now his third book in the trilogy, BEE 20 years later - The Baby and the Bathwater, evaluates progress so far and startles with its fresh perspective on the way forward.
Twenty years after the introduction of BEE, Madi’s view is that the time for follow-up and reflection has come. Clear trends and lessons can now be discerned and learned from. He contends that there is an unfortunate narrative that is gaining currency in South Africa generally and the corporate world in particular, as well as numerous sections of civil society, that BEE has been nothing but a smoke and mirrors initiative towards oligarchy, hence his chosen title: BEE 20 years later - The Baby and The Bathwater.
He believes that, having been the first black author to have written on this subject, he has a unique view of the evolution of the process. As a black entrepreneur himself and a director of various top listed companies with a total combined turnover of more than R90bn, he not only has a conceptual and academic understanding of the subject matter, but also has an insider’s view and experience.
As the title suggests, there is now a tendency to want to ‘throw the baby out with the bathwater’. His book argues that we need to make a very clear distinction between the bouncing baby and the (at times) dirty bathwater. The book analyses both the bouncing baby and the unfortunate dirt and grime that covers the bathwater. It makes a very frank, clinical and yet balanced argument on how this distinction needs to be made, as well as why and how we should all ensure that the baby both survives and thrives going forward, whilst getting rid of the ugly side of BEE - the dirty bathwater. But more importantly, he examines how to restore the credibility of this process so that it truly and genuinely moves away from just being seen as the enrichment of the few and lives true to its promise: the economic empowerment of the many.

McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration is an essential reference for those connected with the construction industry. It is the leading reference work dealing with South African contract law relating specifically to engineering and building contracts. This is the first book to explain the law applicable to the updated Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC) Principle Building Agreement (6th edition, 2014) and the Engineering General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (2nd edition, 2010), which are both annexed to the book and extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader. The book also cross-references the relevant clauses of the FIDIC Contract Agreement (1999). Disputes arising out of building contracts are often referred to arbitration for solution. This work therefore deals with the effect of the Arbitration Act 42 of 1965 and the Association of Arbitrators Standard Procedure Rules, which are also reproduced as annexures in the book.
The second edition of Contemporary Company Law discusses all aspects of the new Companies Act 71 of 2008, including the 2011 amendments and the Companies Regulations, 2011. The common law and relevant legislation are also examined. All the dominant company law topics are discussed in this work. In addition, insider trading and market manipulation receive detailed treatment although they do not strictly form part of core company law. Common-law precepts and principles which have been preserved by the new Act are also discussed wherever relevant. Comparative foreign law is taken into account as well.
The new edition of Everyone's Guide To Labour Law aims to assist employers and employees in respect of their rights, duties and obligations in most labour-related matters, and deals with the relevant legislation, the most common pitfalls, and the processes and procedures that must be followed in the event of a problem.
Practical examples provide clarity and better understanding.
Advanced Questions on SA Tax is the second of two publications designed together to provide comprehensive tutorial coverage to taxation students over a two-year basis.
This book covers advanced topics and integrated questions. Its complementary publication, Questions on SA Tax, covers foundational topics and those typically dealt with in the first year of tax study. This tutorial book includes questions and selected solutions on South African income tax, estate duty and value-added tax. Up-to-date questions are graded, allowing students to develop their abilities from an introductory to an advanced level.
A selection of tutorial solutions is included in the book, and solutions to all questions are provided to lecturers at prescribing institutions. Mark plans are allocated to solutions.
This title is a book that has been very specifically written for the wide (non-legal) audience that needs to know about legislative control over Contracts of Employment. Its hallmarks are accessibility and lucidity: the legislative constraints on the employment relationship as laid down (mainly by the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, or BCEA) are clearly and logically set out, as are the areas in which employer and employee are free to bargain unfettered by legislative intervention.
Supervising Safety is about the implementation of safety measures in an organisation. The book looks at safety theory where it makes the most difference - as it is applied in the workplace. Safety officers are central to the practical application of safety, and their role is clearly spelt out. The goals of the safety supervisor are outlines and one chapter is devoted to the role of ergonomics in the workplace. Readers are also shown how to identify and evaluate hazards in the workplace, develop an employee safety programme and safely handle materials in storage. This book includes: Clearly defined learning outcomes at the start of each chapter to help readers navigate the contents; Self-assessment questions at the end of each chapter to test the reader's understanding of the material; Examples relevant to the South African business environment.
From 1 May 2011 company law in South Africa was dramatically altered: the 1973 Act which had governed companies for the life-times of most business people and lawyers in South Africa was replaced by the Companies Act of 2008, as amended in March 2011. A new era of company law dawned, and with it a host of new concepts, rights, remedies, obligations, procedures and sanctions were introduced. These fundamentally affect the way that every business operates and the advice and practice of every lawyer, accountant or other professional adviser. This title, the first to cover the new Act and the new regulations, provides the hand-holding, the insight, and the understanding that business and their advisers require in order not to be wrong-footed by the new regime.
