Rights and obligations of employer and employee : a study in the light of South African labour law and the Shari'ah.
This thesis looks at the South African development of employment legislation, the provision of the contract of employment, and employee-employer relationship. It briefly examines the historical development of such relationship in South Africa and the most recent legislation. In addition, this thesis also examines existing Islamic literature on the employee-employer relationship and analyzes these principles. The precedence set by Muslim jurists and the juridical verdicts are critically analyzed and discussed. The overall findings of this research into Islamic and South African perspectives on employee-employer relationship will hopefully have implications for policy makers, Islamic scholars, non-governmental organizations and a whole range of stakeholders, both locally and internationally.
