Employers, Employees: Note The New Earnings Thresholds

Overtime limits and pay, working hours regulation, meal intervals, rest periods, night, Sunday and Public Holiday work – these are some of the basic protections and benefits in terms of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA) which don’t apply to employees whose earnings exceed a specified threshold.

From 1 July that threshold increased to R205,433-30 p.a. (from R193,805-00) - but note that some of these benefits don’t apply to certain classes of employee (senior management, some sales staff, and employees working less than 24 hours a month) regardless of earnings, nor in certain circumstances – take advice in need.
