Labour Law

Your Answer to Professional Labour Law Services

South Africa is facing unprecedented adversity with COVID-19 still at large and the recent riots and unrest among the people. As a result, several businesses came to a halt for reasons that are related to these difficult times. South Africa’s Labour Law is also in the spotlight at the moment, as the majority of employees are unsure about their legal rights when faced with a dismissal, while employers are faced with impactful decisions regarding workplace safety and daily operations. Luckily, Allardyce & Partners Attorneys is your answer when you need Labour Law experts on your side.

The Impact of COVID-19 Vaccines on the Workplace

There are thousands of opinions surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines regarding their effectivity and whether to consider getting vaccinated. Aside from such arguments, employers must now legally allow their employees the time, including the recovery period, to get the jabs if they choose to do so. In some sectors, employees are forced to be vaccinated, which will eventually open a different can of worms regarding legalities from both employer and employee. Therefore, it can become easy for the legal lines to blur during these times, which is why you need an expert in South Africa’s Labour Law when you are facing a legal dispute or want to take legal action after being unfairly dismissed.

Riots and Protests Putting Employees in Danger

Several businesses and storefronts were directly impacted with the recent riots and plundering in South Africa, with a plethora of insurance claims as a result of damages caused and property stolen. Unfortunately, insurance claims take up valuable time, causing the business to be in proverbial limbo. In some cases, the riots and protests have made it exceedingly difficult for employees to reach their workplace, fearing for their lives and not having any safe transportation options. Some businesses have responded by offering their employees transportation to and from the workplace. Others have sought solutions to allow their employees to work from home. On top of that, storefronts and walk-in businesses fear that riots and looting might be the end of their business, should it happen to their shop.
