Disadvantages of BCEA.

  • Developing/Drafting a formal/legal employment contract may be time-consuming/costly.
  • Businesses may regard employment contracts as restrictive/negative and may refrain from implementing it, which result in non-compliance/penalties.
  • No employer may force an employee to work more than 45 hours in a week/nine hours in a five-day (or less) work week/eight hours in a six-day work week. This may result in low productivity.
  • Hiring cheap labour is no longer possible, so businesses cannot exploit workers.
  • BCEA forces businesses to comply with many legal requirements, which may increase labour costs.
  • Businesses not complying to the Act, may be charged with high penalties, which may affect their cash flow negatively.
  • Businesses may consider the provisions of the BCEA as unimportant and an unnecessary administrative burden that increase operating costs.
