Government Liability: South Africa And The Commonwealth is the first attempt to analyse in comparative terms the law of government liability and bureaucratic negligence in South Africa, England, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand.
The book is structured around the three basic sources of action – constitutional, statutory and common law – through which an aggrieved person may obtain damages in South African courts for wrongful government conduct. In analysing the legal position in South Africa, the book draws extensively upon case law from the English, Australian, Canadian and New Zealand courts.
The authors examine the impact of the Constitution on developments in the common law of public authority liability and government vicarious liability in South Africa, and link these developments to the changes that have taken place in Canada and England. The study also provides a comparative analysis of the correlation between fraud, bad faith and misfeasance in public office as grounds upon which damages can be awarded when constitutional and administrative justice rights are breached by public functionaries.
Government Liability: South Africa And The Commonwealth also investigates the century-old question of holding the employer, in this instance, the public employer, vicariously liable for the illegal acts of its servants.
The book tackles the problematic issue of quantum of damages in public law in a thorough and comparative manner, not hitherto attempted in the Commonwealth.

Administrative Law in South Africa has been dramatically transformed over the past 14 years since the enactment of the interim Constitution in 1994. This has resulted in a flood of judgments in which the new administrative law has been considered. The large volume of cases and the ever-growing length of judgments make it increasingly difficult to cut through the thicket and zoom in on the core principles of this area of law as they emerge from the materials.
This book collects the key materials on administrative law in South Africa in a focused and organised manner. It is a comprehensive resource tool that will enable anyone encountering administrative law to access the principles of this field through the primary sources.
Among the selections the reader will find both the leading authorities on particular rules and the best illustrations of their application. Apart from the judgments, the book also contains the relevant statutory provisions such as extracts from the 1993 and 1996 Constitutions and the Promotion of Administrative Justice Act 3 of 2000.
Essential social security law, examines the law that seeks to alleviate the economic and social consequences suffered by people in the event of a complete or partial loss of income. It focuses on those contingencies that have a direct impact on a person's earning capacity, such as old age, injuries, unemployment, sickness and pregnancy. It also deals with the death of a breadwinner, medical incapacity, the inability to maintain children, personal and community crises, hardship caused by the state and the lack of opportunities for disadvantaged members of society. In the process of examining these contingencies, the title deals with legislation such as the Social Assistance Act, Pension Funds Act, Compensation for occupational injuries and diseases Act, Unemployment Insurance Act, Basic Conditions of Employment Act and Medical Schemes Act. The k includes recent judgments dealing with various aspects of social security and cross-references the important and comprehensive report on social security compiled by the Taylor Committee. It also contains an additional chapter on the concept of informal social security in South Africa (such as stokvels). The title also sheds light on a number of issues that have a bearing on social security, for instance, financing and administration, unfair discrimination in social security legislation and the social security rights of migrant workers.
This edition contains more words than its predecessors, especially words from the commercial sphere. It follows a new style, namely to group derivations under the leading word instead of treating them as separate entries. There appear after the main word, in bold print and alphabetically, the suffixes to the main word with translations. Concessions have again been made to anglicisms for the sake of clarity of meaning.
On publication of the previous edition of Computers and the Law, developments such as the Internet and electronic commerce were as yet unthought of. The second edition strives to bring the reader up to date with such developments. It also attempts to gauge the law's reaction, or lack of it, to these developments.
This book provides a thorough analysis of the state of collective bargaining in South Africa today. Drawing on extensive empirical research, it examines the processes which have shaped the collective bargaining system, as well as identifying some crucial questions hanging over its future. Collective bargaining is approached from legal, sociological, economic and historical perspectives, thereby giving a multifaceted view of the system.
While the country's unique history may have left trade unions and bargaining councils in a position of relative strength, it is argued that global market forces - manifested in trends towards non-standard employment and other changes in the job market undermining traditional bargaining relationships - pose a serious threat to these institutions. Trade unionists acknowledge that new strategies are needed to meet these challenges, and many employers see the value of stable bargaining relationships.
The book considers empirical data and initiatives developed by trade unions and employers around the world and raises some policy options that might be considered in seeking a way forward. Ultimately it is up to the parties to debate and negotiate improvements to the legal institutions within which collective bargaining takes place. This book will go a long way to stimulating and informing the debate.
Legal luminaries from around the world met at South Africa’s Constitutional Court to discuss the judiciary’s influence in effecting societal change, its relationship with the state and the marginalized and its role in breathing life into the rights to equality, free speech and life. Seminal human rights court cases that retain their relevance despite the passage of time, served as catalysts for reflection, recollection and discussion by some of the world’s leading jurists.
The first-hand accounts of some of those who had been involved in these cases lend poignancy and provide a unique insight into cases that have shaped human rights law.
This book presents fresh and inspiring perspectives on the canon of human rights law. The discussions – lively, engaging, responsive and open-ended – place cases in context while mapping their trajectories in society and across boundaries.
