Employment Relations and Labour Law

South Africa


Tackling the difficult part of people management - handling conflict, legal compliance and dispute resolution

The aim of this page is to educate and empower - sharing information, but also advising you how to use it to solve and avoid typical workplace problems. Understanding why you should do something in a certain way to avoid problems in the future,  is so much more useful than to settle for mere tick-box compliance. 

You can download free documents with basic information, or if you want more substantial training, you can opt for the paid documents or our online training courses.  


Employment Relations in South Africa is a dynamic field. There are constant changes to contend with: new legislation, new case law and new players. It is also not just about labour law - the employer of today has to take into account a plethora of other laws that impact on the workplace and management of the workforce.

The training, information and tools provided here are the result of 25 years' practical experience in employment relations, combined with legal expertise.
