Regulatory Round-up: December 2020 – February 2021 – BCEA

New BCEA threshold and increase in National Minimum Wage

Two recent developments in employment law are important for employers to bear in mind.

BCEA earnings threshold

The Minister of Employment and Labour has published the new earnings threshold in terms of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act, 1997 (BCEA).

With effect from 1 March 2021, the BCEA earnings threshold increases to ZAR 211 596.30 (from ZAR 205 433.30) per annum. The earnings threshold was last revised almost seven years ago.
