The theme of the conference is: Resilience, Recovery & Justice under the ‘New Normal’
The COVID-19 pandemic provides the backdrop for the deliberations of this Conference. The pandemic has had far-reaching impacts on all aspects of social, economic or political life. More than a year after the onset of the pandemic, it is evident that what seemed to be a “temporary inconvenience” has ushered in a “new normal”. The crisis has had a significant impact on the world of work. As countries continue to have to take measures to prevent the spread of the disease, an immediate return to ‘business as usual’ is unlikely. Employers and workers have had to modify different aspects of their work in response to the crisis. It is worth considering the labour and social protection interventions - both short and long term- that African countries have introduced to respond to the crisis. It is also worth considering the legal gaps and make recommendations for reforms required to align the laws with the realities.

The 2nd African Labour Law Society (ALLS) conference was held at Century City conference centre and hotel, Cape Town, South Africa, on the 6th September 2018. The Conference was held the day before the South African Society for Labour Law’s 21st Annual event. The operations were managed by the Secretariat of African Labour Law Society and onsite by the chapter administrators of SASLAW.

The event was managed separately, with different registration portals, registration fees, delegate bags, name tags and sponsors.

The ALLS confirmed its Constitution during the AGM and 19 country representatives were confirmed during the proceedings.

The Management Committee and delegates who attended perceived the 2nd ALLS conference to be a huge success.


The programme was divided into 4 themes:

• Labour Dispute resolution
• Gender Discrimination and Harassment in the Workplace
• Informal Economy
• Migration

Each theme started with a key note address, and then time was given to 2 or 3 speakers in each section from different jurisdictions on this topic.
