Why I have to Inform My Employees of their Rights

Legislation has set out certain rights that an Employee automatically qualifies for when he/she is employed. These rights are stipulated in the Basic Conditions of Employment Act 75 of 1997, Labour Relations Act 66 of 1995, Employment Equity and Regulations act 55 of 1998, to mention a few.
It is important that the Employer display these rights in the workplace, for all employees to read, to ensure that these are clearly visible and in the official languages which are spoken in the workplace.
Many Employees are not aware of their automatic rights and in this way, the Employer ensures they have access to and knowledge off their rights.
