HR Network Breakfast - 1 March 2018
(2nd Session)
Cape Town




Employment Law


Speaker: Ali Ncume,

Director of Maserumule Consulting


1) Resignations pending a disciplinary hearing


Whenever employees are faced with disciplinary action, they counter same with a resignation.  Moreover, despite the notice period requirement, employees undesirably ignore the contractual requirements or statutory notice periods (“BCEA”) and give short notice.  In some instances, they give the notice period as required in the contract of employment or BCEA, but then walk out and do not come back.  This may leave employers stranded without an employee for the notice period. How can the employers deal with this situation?


2) Labour Laws Amendment Bill, 2017

Amendments to the BCEA are proposed to introduce “parental leave”, “adoption leave” and “commissioning parental leave” (regarding parents in surrogate motherhood agreements). Who is entitled? How many days? When are you entitled?
