I know that many businesses have the problem of frivolous and vexatious cases being referred to the CCMA, which results in a lot of wasted time, money for the company. Is there any known route for appealing to the CCMA to have a case dropped before proceedings even begin? Surely they should be able to use their discretion to some degree, and see that a case has no merits? Shouldn't they at the very least do some investigations into the merits of a case?
Any advice on how best to deal with these.
Another question while I'm at it....what are the chances of getting a commissioner to instruct/persuade an applicant to drop a case at Conciliation (this obviously without there having been an agreement reached)? Any suggestions on the best way to go about it, or what would motivate the commissioner to make such a move?
