"working hours and remuneration"

My son works as a security officer in Port Elizabeth. He is expected to work ±225 hours a month (in 12-13 hour shifts), and at times he is asked to work extra shifts (over and above the maximum hours for the month) at no additional remuneration. If he refuses to work, then they merely deduct one days remuneration from his salary. He is earning R13.14 per hour and he is registered with PSRIA as Grade C.
What is the minimum wage, and what can be done about his situation if his employer is acting out of the law in this regard?

It sounds like you have quite a number of issues at hand here. PSIRA`s minimum wage for grade c in that area is R13.97 per hour with 48 hours average per week as maximum hours. The rate will change again on 1 September 2013 for the next 12 months. The company is obliged to pay the employee for overtime work conducted in access of 48 hours p/week. The employee will have to refer the matter to the Department of Labour for assistance whilst he is employed.
