Insecure tenure and labour – farm dwellers and workers
MetadataShow full item record
This edition of Umhlaba Wethu centres attention on the many challenges farm dwellers and workers experience and continue to face. These challenges reflect in their long pursuit of secured tenure rights and a living wage that will provide a sustainable livelihood. Both the Extension of Security of Tenure Act (ESTA) of 1997 as well as the Sectoral Determination 13: Farm Worker Sector provisions affect farm dwellers and workers. The Farm Sectoral Determination regulates wages, working hours and other basic conditions of employment for farm workers while ESTA promotes tenure security and regulates illegal evictions.
