Employment relationships are dominated by the progressive environment of social justice, and amendments to the law that governs it.

We provide to employers an informed service that is both practical and affordable. Our service allows employers to focus on their core business, and to gain a competitive edge without being burdened by legal complexities relating to their employment relationships.

The numerous contradicting judgments that have been handed down by the Labour Court have done little to provide clarity in respect of the many vexing issues faced by employers. The 2014 amendments to the Employment Equity Act and the Basic Conditions of Employment Act also introduced new hurdles to be overcome by employers. Just a few months later, on 1 January 2015, the amendments to the Labour Relations Act became effective. The amendments created some confusion and added to the existing uncertainty.
