The Department of Employment and Labour is set to reform current labour laws in order to eliminate discrimination and violence against women in the workspace.

Labour Minister Thulas Nxesi says the International Labour Organisation Convention will be implemented to tackle the scourge of gender-based violence in the workplace.

The news come as the country continues to commemorate 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence under the theme, “Orange the World: End Violence against Women Now!”.

Nxesi says the harassment of women is one of the greatest issues plaguing the workspace.

He adds that the convention will help address this in the long-term.

Argentina, Fiji, Italy and Namibia have already committed to the convention.
