A Johnson & Johnson vaccine booster shot is being offered to the health workers. There are health professionals that feel that they should choose for themselves whether to take J&J or Pfizer as their booster shot.


Ivan Israelstam illustrates with examples, why it is necessary for employers to ensure that incidents requiring disciplinary hearings, are fully investigated; and the evidence is collated and prepared ready for presentation. Failure to complete the investigation, the preparation, and the presentation steps is highly likely to lead to dismissed employees being reinstated by the Commission for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration. 


In medium to large size companies, there will usually be a number of specialist departments. It is critical that employees within the company understand that any communication arriving from the CCMA should be passed on to the person designated to deal with CCMA matters. Failing to attend an arbitration hearing may well have serious - and expensive - consequences for the company. Ivan Israelstam provides cases to demonstrate the consequences of employer non-attendance.


Ivan Israelstam explains the many ways that communication can go astray between the CCMA and the employer - and the very expensive consequences of the mis-communication.  This week Ivan explains why it is essential for business owners and executives to take labour law seriously and ensure that all management and supervisory levels understand how to manage employees within the law. 


What should an employer do if they believe that a Commision for Conciliation Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) arbitrator has behaved inappropriately, or failed to take into account all aspects of the case, or otherwise misdirected themselves and come to an incorrect conclusion? Ivan Israelstam uses a number of cases to provide examples of how employers have taken up challenges to the the decisions of CCMA Commissioners in the Labour Court.  


This week Ivan Israelstam provides examples of how under-prepared, or inexperienced and untrained employers go wrong - and the financial an industrial relations implications when dismissed employees are re-instated.


Employers who hold senior positions in multi-national and national organisations may hold an arrogant belief that the CCMA Commissioner will believe their testimony against that of a junior employee. Ivan Israelstam explains why this approach could lead to the company losing the arbitration.
