Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma has signed into law the Labour Relations Amendment Act, the Presidency said on Sunday.

Spokesman Mac Maharaj said the Act sought to respond to the increased informalisation of labour to ensure that vulnerable groups received adequate protection and were employed in conditions of decent work.

The Act was also to ensure that labour legislation gave effect to fundamental constitutional rights, including the right to fair labour practices, to engage in collective bargaining, and the right to equality and protection from unfair discrimination. - Sapa
