Employees prefer a written agreement that describes all related information about their job, that is their monthly wage, compensation, leaves, bonus, and termination details. The workweek is up to 45 hours per week, and employees are entitled to parental, sick, and vacation leaves. To help with your international business plans, our experts at Africa HR Solutions devise a comprehensive offering to ensure your move to South Africa is easy and complies with all local laws, norms, cultural differences, and policies.
