This section explains some key constitutional principles and ideas with particular reference to labour law and labour relations in South Africa. The intention is to show how constitutional principles impact labour law and the employment relationship. A further aim is to educate both employers and employees regarding the Constitution.

Links to judgements of the  Constitutional Court are also provided, as well as links to articles published in newspapers and blogs which help our understanding of the Constitution both as citizens of South Africa and as stakeholders in our society.
