Employment Law

The Challenges of South Africa’s Employment Law

South Africa has a very liberal and progressive Labour and Employment Law system in comparison to the rest of the world. Therefore, it is hard to comply with the law in this domain, which can often lead to legal disputes between employers and employees. Understanding how the law applies to both parties can be very challenging. We offer a solution to employers and employees as a boutique law firm that is registered with the Law Society. We offer specialist labour lawyers that can assist you when you find yourself in a legal dispute regarding employment.

Jobs are scarce in South Africa, which allows employers to manipulate their employees to certain extents. Knowing and understanding your rights as an employee and having an expert in the field to advise you on legal matters will be very beneficial to you if you enter a legal dispute with your employer. Since the law in this domain is so progressive, you must be very diligent throughout a legal dispute to ensure that you comply with the law. This is where our services come into the picture. If you earn more than R20 000 per month, we can offer our services on a “No win, no fee” contingency that is subject to our terms and conditions.

As an employer, you want to ensure that you run your business in a legal manner to avoid any legal action from your employees and business associates. Therefore, we offer various solutions for employers. These include advice on and the drawing up of employment contracts, as well as restraint, trade, and confidentiality agreements. As a result, you can ensure that your employees are under legal contracts. You can also ensure that your business agreements comply with the Labour and Employment Law of South Africa.
