UNFAIR POWERS SUBJUGATE HUMAN RIGHTS TO DIGNITY AND ECONOMIC AGENCY IN THE SOUTH AFRICAN LABOUR MARKET
If prospective employers want to know how much competitors pay, why don’t they ask them directly?
Forcing competing firm pay information from applicants destroys rights to fairness and dignity as enshrined in South Africa’s Constitution.
The extortion of rival firm compensation contravenes the notion of fair competition for talent among firms, as protected by the Competition Act.
#PayslipBanSA is currently raising funds to take action against the Competition Commission of South Africa for leading a labour market cartel.
When firms use payslips to determine wages, they:
- unfairly compete for talent
- institute discrimination and inequality
- use information unfairly obtained to breach applicant trust and price-fix pay.
Income inequality can be addressed if recruitment practices are regulated and consequences instituted against those ignoring the rule of law.
