Labour law in SA: Practice and procedure 2021

Much of the day-to-day practice of labour law is in the hands of advisors and representatives who are not lawyers, and who may have little or no formal legal training.

This short course aims to provide those who may not have a legal background the opportunity to access training in the practical application of labour law both in the workplace and in formal dispute resolution procedures at the CCMA and in bargaining councils. The course provides a strong theoretical and vocational basis to assist delegates in their current or future careers and lays the groundwork for other formal studies in the area of dispute resolution practice or for further study towards a CCMA-accredited qualification.

Join us for a semester-long short course, which includes three two-week contact sessions presented remotely via Zoom.

Workshop 1 (Modules 1-3)
