The long awaited National Minimum Wage Act (NMWA) came into effect on 1 January 2019.

The Chamber’s Human Resources Portfolio Committee will be hosting an interactive discussion with Mr David Esau, the Department of Labour’s Western Cape Chief Inspector and Ms Colleen West, Commissioner from the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).

Topics for discussion include:

  • Implementation of the National Minimum Wage
  • Adjustments within certain sectors
