Sectoral Determinations

A sectoral determination controls the terms and conditions of employment for employees in a particular sector. It may set minimum wages in sectors, regulate payment in kind, regulate pension and medical aid schemes, prohibit or regulate piece work, set minimum standards for housing for employees who live on the employer’s premises, and so on. Sectoral determinations will be set in sectors where there is no centralised collective bargaining, and which require detailed and specific regulations (e.g. the agricultural sector). Sectoral determinations may have different conditions to those in the BCEA. The conditions in the sectoral determinations will override the conditions in the BCEA.
