The centrepiece of South African labour legislation is the Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995 (LRA). Its section 1 envisages the noble though ambitious purpose of the LRA as the advancement of 'economic development, social justice, labour peace and the democratisation of the workplace'. The dispute resolution system established by the LRA provides parties with easily accessible remedies. Speedy dispute resolution is core to one of the LRA's primary objects, the effective resolution of labour disputes. This is one of the ways in which the LRA seeks to advance economic development, social justice and labour peace ( (2010) 31 1350 (LC) para 19 ()).
