Minimum wages are still a touchy topic in South Africa, with many discussions around the possible introduction of a national minimum wage across the board.
The minimum wage for the domestic worker sector has been adjusted upwards with effect from 1 December 2016 as announced by the Department of Labour earlier this week. The latest relief ahead of the festive season will be applicable until 30 November 2017.
The minimum wage adjustment is 100% in line with the Basic Conditions of Employment Act which is regulated through the Sectoral Determination. Domestic Workers are by law classified as vulnerable, hence the Sectoral Determination governing minimum wage and conditions of employment.
Domestic workers include housekeepers‚ gardeners‚ nannies‚ domestic drivers among others.
