  1. What penalties can be imposed on an employer if excessive overtime is worked?

    1. Reply to Estelle: Where there is no previous trasgression, a fine of R100 per employee can be imposed. It goes up with a further R100 per employee for every time the transgression is repeated.

  2. Does this apply to the restaurant industry as well. My son is a kitchen manager he does all the ordering of food etc. He works public holidays too and some sundays but does not get paid for this. Is this Illegal?
