Hi Alan and Sylvia

Thank you for attaching the various act and ammendments - good reading material for the holidays. I find it very strange that all of this should have happened at this time of year when most business people and key role players are either away or have closed down for the festive period. Makes one wonder if there is not in fact an ulterior motive in doing so.

COSATU are on the attack regarding the issue of labour brokers and the new legislation (first impression) appears to be another attempt by goverment at regulating without proper consultation or consideration of the consequences and impact.

The introduction of additional restrictive legislation is not going to assist in any way in the creation of jobs it will rather add to and increase the number of unemployed. 

No provision or allowance has been made to give credibility to SMME's or to assist them in any way - the intended legislation, if implemented, will in fact see the demise of many SMME's as it is becoming more and more difficult for SMMEs to deal with restrictive and strangling legislation. The proposals stifle in every respect any effert towards entrepreneurship and the creation of new enterprises.

The proposed legislation appears on  face value to have been poorly thought out, to have been rushed for whatever reasons, is amaturish in content and appears to serve no real purpose in assisting government in achieving any of it's objectives. It will certainly not assist any proposed "growth plans"    

Hi Des,

I clearly recall a similar thing happening before, where proposed changes were circulated late in December and it was February before everyone started to become aware of the proposals, as so many people take off a large part of January.

I'm hoping to spend some time next week going over the changes.  Regarding consultation, it occurs to me that there is no reason why we couldn't compile our responses into a submission to the Portfolio Committee.

Have a peaceful family Christmas and all the best for a successful new year.
