The earnings threshold published in terms of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA) is currently R205,433.30 per annum. Employees who earn below this threshold amount are entitled to the protection of the working hour provisions of the BCEA. The amendments to the Labour Relations Act, which took effect on 1 January 2015, extend protection to employees engaged in atypical forms of employment (namely employees employed in terms of fixed term or part time contracts of employment and employees provided to clients by labour brokers) who earn below the earnings threshold.
