As South Africa celebrates 20 Years of Freedom, workers across the country also celebrated Workers’ Day, known as May Day. The celebrations were held on 1 May, which was a public holiday.

Workers’ Day has been officially observed in South Africa since 1994.

Government is committed to ensuring the welfare of workers.

Over the years, government has put in place various laws and regulations that prevent discrimination and victimisation in the workplace.
