Once in a while, even the most industrious employee will fall sick and not be able to honour the contractual obligations owed to the employer. Sickness is something over which human beings do not have control. Sickness and its treatment are culturally dependent. South Africa is a multicultural society. Not all people in this country understand sickness in the same way; let alone how to treat it. The diverse views on what sickness is and how to treat it will inevitably come to the fore in the workplace, which in our view constitutes a microcosm of South Africa's multicultural society. Inevitably, not all the challenges that arise in a multicultural society will have solutions that fall within the legislative regulatory environment. In the absence of this regulatory framework, a response to such challenges will largely depend on the cultural sensitivity of the particular employer.
