About the seminar

SEIFSA has developed a morning seminar to impart an easy understanding and application of the Parental Leave, Adoption Leave and Commissioning Parental Leave – and the effect these new developments will affect your employees covered by the Main Agreement and those covered by the BCEA.

On 27 November 2018 the President signed the Labour Laws Amendment Act (LLAA) into law. This amended the Basic Conditions of Employment Act in a number of areas, such as, Parental Leave, Adoption Leave and Commissioning Parental Leave, but was not effective in law as no commencement date for the legislation was announced. However, on 23 December 2019, the President announced the commencement date for parental leave, adoption leave and commissioning parental leave as 1 January 2020.

The workshop will summarise the nature of these new leave entitlements and will provide advice to employers on how to apply and manage these new leave entitlements.

The Programme will include the following:
