Im­pact of labour court bids – PSC

The New Age (KwaZulu-Natal) - - Politics -

THE Public Ser­vice Com­mis­sion (PSC) yes­ter­day gave a brief­ing on an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into why em­ploy­ers do not im­ple­ment labour-re­lated court or­ders and the im­pact thereof.

The PSC re­ceived en­quiries and com­plaints from em­ploy­ees re­gard­ing the non-im­ple­men­ta­tion of ar­bi­tra­tion awards and Labour Court or­ders by gov­ern­ment de­part­ments. The PSC con­ducted an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the com­plaints. In a brief­ing to­day, the PSC will re­lease its find­ings. It will also give rec­om­men­da­tions to the af­fected gov­ern­ment de­part­ments.

The PSC has warned against fail­ure to im­ple­ment ar­bi­tra­tion awards and com­pli­ance with court or­ders, as this has se­ri­ous im­pli­ca­tions on the man­age­ment of labour re­la­tions, hu­man re­sources and de­vel­op­ment in gen­eral.

The pe­riod un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion is for awards and court or­ders is­sued dur­ing the 2013-14 and 2015-16 fi­nan­cial years.
