Key Aspects of Labour Law

The Webinar covers the following content:

• Employers who are not apprised with the Labour legislation, and as a result, find themselves in breach; suffer serious consequences. Penalties, or perhaps worse, negative reputational drivers which have an effect on the bottom line. The LRA and the BCEA are the core to an employment relationship. Employers
are required to identify with all its aspects as it regulates the relationship between the employer and the employee.

• The workshop will also give consideration to the new parental leave, adoption leave and commissioning parental leave, which became effective on 1 January 2020
