Basic Guide to Working on Sundays (Domestic Workers)

Workers must be paid a higher wage or receive paid time off in exchange for working on a Sunday.

Application

  • work on farms; or
  • are covered by -
    • another sectoral determination, or
    • a bargaining council agreement.

The Basic Conditions of Employment Act applies in respect of any matter not covered by this sectoral determination.
