Following calls from the Gauteng government for quotas on businesses to hire local workers, legal firm Wright Rose-Innes has outlined the plans the national government is putting in place to do exactly that. This comes in the form of proposed amendments to the Employment Services Act, which, if signed into law, would see the employment and labour minister empowered to set limited on businesses as to the number of foreign workers they can hire. “Most employers will be forgiven if they claim not to have heard of the Employment Services Act 4 of 2014. This legislation is certainly not as well-known as the Labour Relations Act, the Basic Conditions of Employment Act or even the Employment Equity Act,” the firm said. “Yet, with major amendments proposed to the Employment Services Act in particular in respect of the employment of foreign nationals in South Africa, employers that make use of such employment should take note of the proposed amendments.”

The immigration act for South Africa allows for the Minister of Home Affairs to waive certain requirements of the act. Once the requirement has been waived, an individual or corporation will be exempt from that requirement in that instance. In layman’s terms that means that the minister has the authority through the immigration act to waive a specific requirement. In order to be granted the waiver, an applicant must have a “good cause” to be granted. Your application for a waiver must be 100% sound and have good reasoning as the good cause must convince the Department of Home Affairs as to why they need to make an exemption for you. The applicant must prove that there is sufficient evidence to waive the requirement or form and then the Department of Home Affairs shall determine to either grant or refuse the waiver.
