South Africa National Minimum Wage
The Republic of South Africa has published its 2021 National Minimum Wage. Employment and Labour Minister has announced that the National Minimum Wage (NMW) for each ordinary hour worked has been increased from R20,76 to R21,69 (In Nigeria is About: #55,171.89 TO #57, 643.47.) for the year 2021 with effect from 01 March 2021.
The NMW legislation in South Africa came into effect on 01 January 2019 at a level of R20 per hour. In terms of the NMW Act of 2018, the policy framework is a floor level below which no employee should be paid.
It is illegal and an unfair labour practice for an employer to unilaterally alter hours of work or other conditions of employment in implementing the NMW. The NMW is the amount payable for the ordinary hours of work and does not include payment of allowances (such as transport, tools, food or accommodation) payments in kind (board or lodging), tips, bonuses and gifts.
The Act of 2018 requires that the NMW Commission review the rates annually and make recommendations to the Minister on any adjustment of the national minimum wage, while also reflecting on alternative views, including those of the public.
