    Adoption: 1979-05-01 | ISL-1979-L-36766

    Stipulates that labourers who have served continuously for a year with parties engaging in business operations within the same trade are entitled to one month's advance notice of termination of employment. If engaged continuously for three years, the labourer is entitled to two months advance notice and after five years the notice is three months. The Act contains specific provisions concerning calculation of working period. All labourers who are excused from work on account of accident at work, on direct route to or from work or due to occupational diseases caused by it, shall receive payment of wages for daytime work for up to three months in accordance with the tariff under which the party concerned received wages. Labourers engaged continuously for one year shall not forfeit any of their wages for one month. If the labourer has worked three years he shall in addition retain his wages for one month, or for two months after five years work. Repeals Act No. 16 of 1958 with the same title.
