South African companies have a responsibility to comply with South African Labour Law. This is not only a legal obligation for businesses of all sizes and from any industry, but is also an essential component for maintaining the morale of your work-force.
Labour law is the body of law that governs the employer-employee relationship. This includes individual service contracts, common law, and a large group of statutory regulations on matters such as the right to establish and negotiate collective bargaining agreements, protection from discrimination, wages and hours, and health and safety, unfair dismissal matters, unfair labour practices and retrenchments.
Michael Krawitz provides services and advice relating to South African Labour Law and settling related disputes. For employers we can assist with dispute resolution and compliance, as well as offering advice.
For employees who have found themselves the victims of discrimination in labour law, we offer specialist legal services and advice as well.
