President Robert Mugabe signs Amendment Bill
President Robert Mugabe yesterday reportedly signed the Labour Amendment Bill into law, making it an Act of Parliament.
According to legislative watchdog, Veritas, Mugabe signed the Labour Amendment Bill into law less than a week after it was stampeded through Parliament.
The legal experts said the major changes on the Labour Law were made to Section 12 of the original Act, and in the process, removed the common law position that allowed the termination of contracts on three months’ notice.
The hasty changes to the country’s labour law were triggered by a July 17 Supreme Court judgment giving employers the same rights as workers in the cancellation of contracts.
