LAW TRAINING

The training provided by Welman and Bloem incorporated is unique. Although we will always be available to assist the client with any Labour related matters, we focus in our training on empowering the client to be able to handle seemingly difficult circumstances linked to Labour Law on his own. Our training is developed to be practical, and to further teach the client the simple, but vital, Labour Law aspects that are necessary for his business. We bring you the background knowledge, as well as the how to. Let us empower you!

In terms of the Labour Relations Act, it is necessary for Employers to have a Disciplinary Enquiry in case the Employer contemplates dismissing the Employee. Besides for dismissal, Disciplinary Enquiries play a vital role when there was any type of misconduct by an Employee, as even a warning can be referred to the CCMA if given unfairly. We look at the different aspects that must be included in Disciplinary Enquiries, and we teach Employers how to conduct their own Disciplinary Enquiries.

We have specific training to empower schools to conduct Disciplinary Enquiries. The reason for same is the fact that there are many different factors to consider – the staff may be employed by the Department of Education, or by the School Governing Body – different procedures and rules apply. Different rules also apply when having Disciplinary Enquiries for children of different ages. We teach Principals and other delegates how to approach each case in a simple manner.

Trade Unions and Organizational Rights:
When looking at Labour Legislation, Trade Unions have certain Organizational Rights. We empower both Trade Unions and Employers, to know which rights they are entitled to and how Trade Unions must go about obtaining their rights. Not all Trade Unions have all Organizational Rights – we teach you which Organizational Rights apply in each case. We further offer our services to negotiate with Trade Unions, if the Employer so chooses

Employers are often unsure what to do when a certain employee does not deliver the standard of work expected of him. The fact is that an employee may indeed be dismissed should the correct procedure be followed. We give you the much-needed knowledge regarding the go about of Poor Work Performance.

Employers are unfortunately sometimes in a position where they realize that retrenching certain employees would be the only way for them to stay afloat. A proper procedure needs to be followed if an Employer contemplates retrenchment. We explain the procedure so that Employers can follow it correctly and according to the law.
