Employment Law Best Practices

We specialise in all types of employment and labour law matters, including litigation in the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (“CCMA”), bargaining councils and Labour Court cases.

We are primarily aimed at servicing corporate clients, requiring advice and assistance for their businesses in South Africa and we also provide advice on employment law in African jurisdictions, in particular Botswana and Namibia.
