This Monday Tech Talk will discuss the working hours in South Africa. In this video, we will discuss the standard working hours, the maximum number of hours an employee can work, and the rights of workers in terms of working hours.
In South Africa, the standard working hours are 8 hours a day and 40 hours a week for full-time employees. However, certain industries may have different working hours due to the nature of the work. For example, healthcare workers, security guards, and farmworkers have different working hours and may work shifts.
According to the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, an employee cannot work more than 45 hours a week or more than 9 hours a day, unless they agree to work overtime. Overtime should be compensated at a higher rate than the normal rate of pay.
It is important for both employers and employees to be aware of the working hour regulations in South Africa to ensure that employees are not exploited and their rights are protected.
