Labour & Employment

The dispute & disagreement scenarios under which either an employer or employee might find themselves tangled in are endless, sometime even unimaginable. Whereas some employers would be keen on immediate dismissal of an employee (for one cause or another), they often find themselves wandering about how they could surpass certain articles in the Labour Law that strictly warns off such action; labelled as “unfair dismissal”, because the employer is legally bound to have had issued & signed three official warnings before being able to take such an (immediate) action.

There are many familiar labour & employment scenarios known & told by many; with the legal repercussions becoming “general knowledge”, due to the cases won/lost throughout the law’s history.

Whether you are an employer (business owner), HR professional, or practitioner (employee), you should know that the secret to avoiding any potential employment legal dispute lies in the very foundation of the employment agreement i.e. the employment contract signed by both parties.
