Volume: Volume 22 - 2018

Article type: Refereed article

Author/s: Prinsloo, Monique; Huysamen, Elsabe

South Africa is regarded as a wonderful example of a multicultural society - housing a diverse range of individuals from across various races, cultures, backgrounds and religions, to name but a few.  The Constitution protects the rights to culture and religion, amongst others, and these rights are also protected in the employment sphere. This paper will specifically explore cultural and religious diversity within the South African workplace. It will seek to define culture and religion with the view of improving the understanding thereof in the employment context. It will also discuss the clashes and overlap that are often encountered between these two separate rights.
