Know your rights as an employee

We can help you understand your rights as set out in the National Labour Law and give you legal advice on the best course of action for your unique situation. We can represent you if you would like to enter litigation or take other legal action.

In general, both the requirements of the employer and employee are considered when reaching agreements between parties. This is set out in South Africa’s fair labour practice jurisdiction.

For instance, it often happens that a static agreement is entered into when someone accepts employment. However, this inflexibility can be detrimental to the employee-employer relationship.

Employers often expect flexibility from their employees. This is because any work environment that is keeping up with the times is bound to undergo some changes. And while this is often necessary, it can seem unfair to the employee. While an employee signed and agreed to one thing, often the criteria changes completely. This means that they need to reevaluate the agreement for it to be fair and reasonable.

This is only one of the kinds of situations our labour lawyers in Cape Town are experienced in. If you feel that you rights are not respected in the workplace, contact us today.


For employers

Simultaneously, employers can seek legal assistance for aspects like outplacement. This is a service where employees are prepared for a job loss through counseling. They also need to be sufficiently prepared to find a new job. Outplacement equips them to deal with these changes and remain relevant. This often saves the company a lot of time and money as the employee feels positive about their future.
