We have all heard that the CCMA have on numeruous occasions either ordered employers to re-instate employees who have been dismissed or ordered that the employer compensate dismissed employees.

Usually such orders are granted in instances where the employers have failed to comply with the requirements for substantive and procedural fairness at or during disciplinary hearings.

Now much of these problems can be avoided provided that employers comply with the LRA. I have published an article on our new blog regarding this matter. Please go to our blog and read the article, and you are welcome to leave your comments either on our blog or on this forum.
