Avoid the Wrong Side of the LRA with Expert Labour Law Services
Did you know that the CCMA deals with over 100 000 cases relating to unfair labour practice each year and that up to 97% of businesses lose their case against their employees?
Employees matter, so much so that the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA), and the Labour Relations Act (LRA) go far in guaranteeing their rights are met.
When it comes to the LRA and the BCEA, businesses cannot afford to take chances. A multifaceted practice, driven by the government to protect workers’ rights, prevent employee exploitation, safeguard the employer’s productivity and profits, and referee the employee, employer and trade union relationship – labour law is an essential part of running any business.
Labour Law Services Add Value to Your Organisation
If you want to avoid being on the wrong side of the LRA – use labour law services. While most HR departments deal with disciplinary hearings, grievances, salaries and contracts, legal issues relating to the LRA and BCEA are complicated areas that demand legal expertise with years of hands-on experience. Keeping the HR department at the forefront of developments in employment laws, new legislation and skills development training, labour law consultants cut through all the legal jargon so that you can understand and make the best decision for your business.
Outsourced labour law services can add value to your organisation by doing the following:
- Drawing up employment contracts, restraints of trade, and confidentiality agreements.
- Chairing disciplinary enquiries and prosecuting on behalf of the employer.
- Consulting on all aspects of human resources and industrial relations.
- Handling of disputes relating to dismissal and labour practice, probation, restraints, and confidentiality.
- Drafting codes, policies, procedures, and training manuals.
- Provide in-house training and facilitation on BBBEE, skills development, employment equity, health and safety, and organisational development.
- Provide legal advice on all areas of labour and employment law.
- Provide legal representation at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), Bargaining Councils, Labour Courts, Labour Appeal Court, High Courts and the Supreme Court of Appeals, and the Constitutional Court.
- Handling retrenchments, strikes, and picketing.
