Title: Church and State in South Africa in 1999
Author(s): COERTZEN, Pieter
Journal: European Journal for Church and State Research - Revue européenne des relations Églises-État
Volume: 7 Date: 2000
In the relationship between Church and State labour relations are a very important factor. This can also be seen in the book State and Church in the European Union published in 1996 where a paragraph on labour relations is a standard part of all the contributions in the book.
As far as the Dutch Reformed Church, and also other churches, in South Africa are concerned one of the most important developments in their relationship to the State during the past few years was the promulgation of the new Labour Relations Act. The Act was amended in September 1996 and came into force on 11 November 1996.
