Enforcement of a Bargaining Council Agreement

It is an offence for employers or employees working in a particular industry and area not to obey the terms of the Bargaining Council Agreement. Any problems about any of the working conditions in the Agreement must be referred to the Bargaining Council for investigation. The Bargaining Council’s agents have powers of inspection similar to Labour Inspectors in terms of the BCEA. Such agents can provide Compliance Orders where employers are in breach of the council agreement.
