We Are Labour and Employment Law Experts

COVID-19 has turned everything on its head in South Africa, with several businesses being forced to find new ways to conduct business in an effort to avoid the spread of the virus among their employees. Although a variety of countries managed to limit the amount of daily COVID-19 cases, South Africa still suffers more than 10 000 new cases daily. This has a noticeable and drastic effect on employers and employees alike, causing some confusion regarding their legal rights and options when COVID-19 comes into the picture. Allardyce & Partners Attorneys offers Labour and Employment Law specialists that can assist you in these matters.

Inform and Educate Yourself

There is a great deal of misinformation regarding the rights of the employer when an employee attends work while being COVID-19 positive. Therefore, you should seek reliable sources to inform and educate yourself regarding the rights of both employer and employee in such a situation. A recent Labour Court case ruled in favour of an employer who dismissed an employee who attended work while consciously being COVID-19 positive. This emphasises the importance of knowing your rights and responsibilities within the workplace, ensuring that you are on the right side of the law when pursuing a legal dispute.
