We understand you don’t have time to waste on employees that are not an asset to your business, but the labour laws require you to jump through hoops and loops to protect the interest of your employees. The same employees who are costing you money, not making you money.
By adopting comprehensive labour manuals, you and your employees have a “handbook” that addresses every situation, from leave, to performance, to disciplinary action.
You can save yourself a lot of time, frustration and legal fees if you and your employees have a manual to follow.
An angry employer cannot remain objective during a disciplinary hearing of an employee. Any disciplinary action taken pursuant to such a hearing will probably end up in the CCMA.
By having one of our attorneys preside over the disciplinary hearing, you can testify against your employee and be assured that the attorney will decide on an outcome that is objectively fair, considering all circumstances and legal principles. After all, it is one of our attorneys that will have to persuade the CCMA that the decision was fair if the employee refers a dispute to the CCMA.
Creating distance between an employer and employee during disciplinary hearings will result in less hostility and more likely result in a fair procedure to both parties in compliance with the labour laws.
