Labour Law Services

The body of South African Labour and employment laws, rules and regulations is constantly expanding and becoming increasingly intricate. As a result of this, line managers and essential HR personnel are often not familiar with applicable legislation, which can pose a significant risk for your organisation’s assets, relationships and reputation. Identifying HR and Labour related legal risks upfront is essential to protect your organization from becoming entangled in costly and complex legal procedures, as well as to maintain healthy and effective relationships with your workforce.
