  1. Constructive Dismissal

    Constructive dismissal, or what is referred to as “forced resignation,” is a somewhat misunderstood concept.

    Constructive dismissal as grounds for dismissal finds its statutory base in section 186 (1)(f) ...

    As mentioned in my first blog post, Standing Out From the Crowd, Red Giant is a venture in which we aimed to be remembered. One of the primary image-related things we focused on in order to achieve that goal was great business card design.

    A full 2 weeks were spent researching, brainstorming, designing and redesigning our business cards, in order to make sure they were perfect. We wanted to receive great reactions every time we handed ...

A settlement agreement, in principle, constitutes a waiver of the employee’s rights and therefore renders a dispute non-existent and the CCMA is subsequently without jurisdiction. Many employers, labor practitioners and advisors make use of settlement agreements at the end of the employee’s tenure as a way to eliminate further disputes ...
