Abstract:The right not to be unfairly dismissed is well-recognized in South African labour law. Anecdotal evidence suggests that South Africa may be over-regulated in this regard. ILO Convention C158 provides standard-setting guidelines in respect of the termination of any worker's employment. In this contribution, ILO standards are considered and the respective positions in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, the United States of America and South Africa are compared to ILO Convention C158. The authors seek to establish whether unfair dismissal law in South Africa is out of step with international standards and the position in a selection of foreign jurisdictions. Notes, ref., sum.
