CCMA Legal Assistance

Need CCMA Legal Assistance? Here’s Why You Should Turn to Allardyce & Partners

You’ve spent weeks planning for a case to be decided by the CCMA. You were super confident that you had everything in order, but despite all your hard work, you’ve lost your case and now you’re forced to pay out to your employee (who did more wrong than good) a whole 24 months’ salary. Yes, you’ve lost to dispute, but what’s even more painful is that your employee can have the Sheriff of the Court attach your assets if you don’t pay on time. Yes, losing to the CCMA is not something to be taken lightly, especially considering how bad the economy is right now. While you deserve a good pat on the back for venturing down this path on your own, you should have turned to Allardyce & Partners for CCMA legal assistance.

Having a CCMA Case On Your Hands is No Child’s Play

The CCMA can either bring a business to its knees or it can shut a dishonest employee down, but that all depends on your defence and how accurate you were in following the correct procedure. The truth is any organisation can hire an employee, only to catch them in the act of stealing and consequently dismiss them, but then find themselves having to pay the ex-employee their salary. How is this even possible?

With every passing day, labour law is becoming more and more complex. The Labour Relations Act (LRA), the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA), and the Employment Equity Act (EEA) are constantly being updated and amended, and if you’re not up to date with all the rules and regulations, you’re bound to find yourself on the wrong side of the LRA. You see, the CCMA’s main concern is whether or not you’ve dismissed the employee in a manner that was both fair and justified.

Specific Functions of the CCMA

Founded on the principle of conciliating first before arbitrating, the CCMA is an independent body established by law to carry out a range of workplace dispute preventions and resolutions. Largely due to word of mouth, employees at all levels are aware that, for little or no cost, they can bring a case against an employer, even if they are wrong. The reality is that any employer can end up in CCMA headquarters, which is why you need to protect yourself and your business. The bottom line is that if you want your business to thrive and survive, you need to arm yourself with labour law professionals who can offer you CCMA legal assistance in dealing with workplace issues, when and should they arise.
