With over 70 changes made to the BCEA, EEA and Labour Relations Act recently... As YOU read this...

Your company could be hurtling towards a

Here's what you need to do to stay on top of SA's ever-changing employment law

Dear employer, 
Recently, the Minister of Labour and Government overhauled the 3 Acts governing how you treat your employees… They affected over 70 changes… AND put in place a brand new Act  detailing the labour practices you need to follow with any foreign national you employ. 
Thanks to these changes, that keeping up with labour laws… Ensuring your company’s policies and procedures don’t violate them… And staying out of the CCMA will be an even more mammoth task than usual. Especially when you consider these changes affect not only your new employees, but all your existing ones as well. 
So it’s hardly surprising thousands of employers are madly scrambling to hire labour and HR consultants to ensure they don’t end up on the wrong side of the law. 
Given the circumstances (and the whopping R2.7 million fine the DoL’s put in place for some transgressions), you have no choice but to go this route, right?
Today, you have another choice...

I’m proud to offer you the ultimate solution to your labour headaches

I’m Lizle Louw.
I’ve been an employment lawyer for 15 years and currently head up the employment department at Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs. 
As part of one of the continent’s leading law firms, my department deals with a whole host of political, legal and cultural regulatory contexts that affect employers like you. 
And believe me when I say that very few labour landscapes change as rapidly – or are as complicated – as the South African one. 
It’s a virtual minefield. 
One misstep and your company could land up in a labour dispute that costs you everything. 
I see it happen every day. 
As part of my job, I regularly chair disciplinary and appeal hearings as well as appear in the CCMA, bargaining Councils and the Labour Court for my clients. 
You won’t believe the trouble some company’s get themselves into with the law. 
With the DoL’s recent changes, employers around the country are struggling to make sure their companies conform.
Do you know what that means? 
The CCMA (which usually hears around 100 000 cases a year) is about to get even busier.
I don’t want you to find yourself there.  
That’s why, as the Editor-In-Chief, I want to tell you about my revolutionary labour advisory service. 

With the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service, you’ll never find yourself on the wrong side of labour legislation again!

The Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service is a resource like no other. 
This practical guide ensures you know and understand your rights as an employee without spending thousands of Rands on expensive legal advice to deal with employer-employee disputes. 
It’s a service that covers EVERY aspect of employment law. 
From absenteeism, strikes and trade unions to conciliation and arbitration... From disciplinary hearings and grievances to employment contracts, leave requests and performance management… You’ll know exactly what the law says and what to do to stay on the right side of it. 
And since SA’s labour landscape is such a tricky one to navigate, I don’t tackle these issues on my own. I’ve handpicked 25 of SA’s best labour and HR experts to help me. 
Joining me are:
  • Ex-CCMA Senior Commissioner, Professor Barney Jordaan:
    This ex-CCMA Senior Commissioner has seen it all: Disputes over leave… Employee grievances that got out of hand… Businesses that had job candidates sue them for not hiring them… You name it, in his 23 years at the CCMA, he’s seen it.
    Today, Barney spends his time at the Graduate School of Business of Stellenbosch University. Here, he lectures on negotiation, mediation and management law for the institution’s MBA programme.
  • Alex Ferreira, one of SA’s leading employment lawyers:
    Alex’s speciality is employment litigation. He’s a whizz when it comes to matters relating to the CCMA, bargaining council, Labour Court, Labour Appeal Court, High Court and the Supreme Court of Appeal.
  • Labour law specialist and host of 702’s Labour Line, Gill Loveday:
    Gill is a recognised industry expert who regularly advises 702’s listeners on how to deal with labour disputes. On top of this, Gill too has spent her time cutting her teeth at the CCMA. As a part-time Commissioner for the past 18 years, Gill regularly deals with all things regarding employers, employees and labour law. 
  • Renowned labour law consultant, Ivan Israelstam:
    With over 27 years in the field and 4 years’ experience as a CCMA commissioner, Ivan’s expertise in all things labour related is highly sought after. To date, he’s authored 2 labour law books, is the consultant behind The Star newspaper’s Workplace section and is an in-demand speaker at conferences and seminars.
  • Plus 21 more of the country’s top labour talent. 
They’re my favourite part of the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service!
Because not only do you get access to all these experts as a member, but at least 2 of them check and double check every single piece of advice we give you. That way, you can rest assured every tip, solution and case law explanation we give you is 100% legal and completely CCMA-proof!
Plus, my experts are always on hand to answer any labour issues you may have. 
That’s right. If you have a labour law question, simply ask my team. You’ll receive the kind of one-on-one advice you’d normally have to pay a fortune for – absolutely FREE.
Now do you understand why I believe there isn’t a more comprehensive, practical, solution-orientated labour law service available?

  Yes! I want this labour law solution
to help me stay on top of changes to the law
But I must warn you…

If you want to protect your company, you must act today

You see, what most employers don’t realise is that you only have 3 months after Government signs in law changes to comply. 
That means, if your company isn’t already implementing last year’s changes to the Employment Equity Act and the Basic Conditions to Employment Act, you’re in BIG trouble. 
And it could cost you up to R2.7 million or 10% of your annual turnover depending on the offence you commit. 
And with the Labour Relations Amendments Act also effective, you have to get up to speed with these too.
That’s no time at all when you think there are over 70 amendments to these acts you need to implement. 
Or when you realise the DoL has already started to penalise companies that fail to comply. 
Can you really afford to be without the Labour Law for Managers Loose Leaf Service a second longer?
I didn’t think so! So let me tell you what you’ll get when you join today…
