It has become increasingly common to appoint employees on a temporary basis as an alternative to permanent employment (see Clive Thompson 'The Changing Nature of Employment : What has Changed?' (2003) 24 Industrial LJ 1793). An employer would in so doing escape being subjected to the onerous duties and obligations imposed on employers by the Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995 (the 'LRA') (see Cremark, a Division of Triple P Chemical Ventures (Pty) Ltd v SA Chemical Workers Union & Others (1994) 15 ILJ 289 (LAC)).
