‘Objection! Leading the witness!

The law was passed initially by a large voting margin and comes in the wake of the recent United States Supreme Court ruling on the Arizona's Legal Worker's Act of 2007 that sanctions businesses for hiring undocumented workers.

New Legislation proposed in South Africa could see the end of the Recruitment industry as we currently know it. It is proposed to outlaw all forms of temporary and contract recruitment forcing all employers to employ staff on a permanent basis only.
