Sa Rights And Responsibilities In The Workplace

In the South African Constitution certain rights have been entrenched to which we as South African citizens may lay claim. These rights are also applicable in our workplace, because the Constitution has set up certain rules to which our employers must adhere so that our rights as employees may be safeguarded.

You probably realize that all rights also imply responsibilities. If we are entitled to a specific privilege, it is also our duty not to misuse that privilege. Let us use the school as an example. Learners have the right to stay away from school if they are ill. However, we can’t stay away from school for a whole week and then simply return without having kept up with the work that was done during our absence. It is a learner’s duty to find out what was done in his/her absence, and then to catch up the work on his/her own. It is the learner’s responsibility. The same applies to the situation in the workplace.
