Protecting the Rights of Farm Workers

The rights of labor tenants and farm workers were also protected under the Land Reform Act of 1996, which prevents them for being evicted from their farms without a court order or if they are over 65 years old. An Extension of Security of Tenure Act 62 of 1997 and the Prevention of Illegal Occupation of Land Act of 1998 were also enforced to give these workers security of tenure.
