What you need to know before you plan your dates off
Much excitement has been filtering through the country as fathers-to-be have recently become eligible for paternity leave. A great many dads in waiting are thrilled to be able to play a larger role in the early days of their new-borns life. With many households being double income households, families reply more and more for both parents’ income as well as sharing the work load that is involved when it comes to raising a new infant. Dads are pleased to have the chance to spend time with their babies and have the opportunity to bond with the littles ones during this time. Mom’s alike will no doubt be pleased to have their partners around to assist them during this period of large adjustment within the household. The passing of this new law enforces the idea that social norms are changing and when legislation changes to keep up with those changes, it is an acknowledgement of an enlightened society.
Most workers in South Africa will get no less than R20 an hour from the start of next year, although some state workers may still get as little as R11.
President Cyril Ramaphosa said in Kliptown, Soweto, today that the national minimum wage will have to be paid to workers from the start of January.
Under the new law, employers will have to pay their staff a minimum wage of R20 an hour with the exception of sectors such as the farm/forestry, domestic and expanded public works programme workers, that have been given a longer transition period to pay R18, R15 and R11 per hour respectively.
