Your Answer for Labour and Employment Law Disputes

South Africa’s labour and employment law can often be misinterpreted as it is difficult to clarify how these laws apply to the employer, employee, and workplace. As a result, labour- and employment-related legal disputes are common, usually caused by a confusion on how specific laws are valid and applicable to specific situations. Luckily, Allardyce & Partners Attorneys offers labour law specialists that can assist you when you find yourself in a situation where you need legal advice and/or representation.

Looking Back at 2020

Throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, lockdowns were introduced as a means to slow down the spread of the virus. These lockdowns had a crucial and direct impact on the workplace, forcing businesses to adapt to a new normal. Many businesses failed to find a way to accommodate their employees throughout strict lockdown periods, leading to several people losing their jobs as a result of retrenchments or businesses simply going bankrupt. These events sparked several legal disputes that displayed how progressive and liberal the labour and employment law truly is in South Africa.

Looking Ahead into 2021

The general workplace is shifting to a more comfortable and accommodating environment for various industries that can allow their employees to work from home. However, working from home comes with its own set of challenges. Several legalities will also play a role in the future – when companies will be able to go fully digital to create a virtual workplace and avoid any physical human interaction in an effort to nullify the possibility of spreading the COVID-19 virus.
