Event organised by the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) to commemorate Mahlangu v Minister of Labour court case, 2021.11.04, Houghton: [Set of 28 Still images]

The Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) organised an event to commemorate Mahlangu v Minister of Labour court case. In Mahlangu v Minister of Labour, the Court declared the constitutional invalidity of section 1(xix)(v) of the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act 130 of 1993 (COIDA), which excluded domestic workers employed in private households from the definition of "employee", thus precluding them from claiming from the Compensation Fund for work-related injuries, illness or death. Significantly, the Court also ruled that the order of constitutional invalidity is to have immediate and retrospective effect from 27 April 1994, which means domestic workers and dependants who have experienced work-related injuries, diseases or death as far back as 27 April 1994 are also able to submit claims.
