The Basic Conditions of Employment Amendment Act 20 of 2013 and its regulations that were published on 29 August 2014 came into operation on 1 September 2014 (GN 987 in 37139 of 1 September 2014). The Employment Equity Act 55 of 1998 ('EEA') has been amended by the Employment Equity Amendment Act 47 of 2013 (GN R16 in 37238 of 16 January 2014). Although the Labour Relations Amendment Bill, 2012, was predicted to come into law in mid-2013, it was only assented to by the President on 18 August 2014 (See the Proclamation of the Labour Relations Amendment Act 6 of 2014 in 37921 of 18 August 2014). Although these amendments will impact on many facets of employment law, the legislation only became effective in 2014 and will be discussed in 2014 . Otherwise, there was no significant legislation relevant to this field of law during the period under review.
