COVID-19 and Labour Law: South Africa
Keywords:Covid-19, Labour Law, Lockdown, Social Security Law, Health and Safety
South Africa’s existing social security and labour law framework is inadequate to protect employees in the formal sector during the Covid-19 lockdown. However, commendable temporary income replacement measures have been introduced to counter this situation. Nevertheless, South Africa’s biggest shortcoming lies in the lack of protection for its considerable informal sector. Government did not respond adequately. When informal sector workers don’t work, they remain hungry.
