Labour Law

Employment law, more commonly referred to as labour law, is a field of law applicable to all South Africans while the majority, whether employers or employees, are not aware of their rights and obligations regulated by inter alia the Labour Relations Act, Basic Conditions of Employment Act, and ultimately, the Constitution.

Aspects covered by our expertise include without limitation:

  • Dispute resolution
  • CCMA and Bargaining Council appearances
  • Urgent applications to Labour Court
  • Referring CCMA and Bargaining Council awards the Labour Court for review
  • Assisting employers with drafting employment agreements, disciplinary codes of conduct, grievance procedures, notices of suspension and charge sheets, as well as offering guidance in ensuring substantive and procedural compliance with the Labour Relations Act and Basic Conditions of Employment Act when holding disciplinary hearings
  • Assisting employees with the interpretation of contracts of employment, preparation for disciplinary hearings by informing them of their rights and referring unfair dismissals and unfair labour practises to the CCMA or applicable Bargaining Councils
