Chabangu, Mr M to ask the Minister of Employment and Labour
Whether his department is considering to introduce a jobs protection bill in light of the lockdown to curb the spread of COVID-19?
There is currently no intention to introduce a jobs protection bill. The Department is however in the process of developing a national employment policy that would amongst others address the notion of protection of jobs. This policy will have to be presented to parliament when it is done.
