The South African Constitutional Court in its seminal judgment on the right to compensation for domestic workers Mahlangu and Another v Minister of Labour and Others[2020] ZACC 24(Victor AJ’s majority judgment) relied on Shreya Atrey, Intersectional Discrimination (OUP 2019) to expand the scope of disadvantage and to extend the constitutional guarantee of equality and non-discrimination on an intersectional basis to domestic workers. The decision now allows domestic workers, who are often poor and Black at the same time, to claim compensation in the event of injury or death in the course of their employment. Domestic workers were one of the only groups excluded so far from the Compensation for Occupational Injuries and Diseases Act in South Africa.
