Attend a Critical Workshop : Law, Business And Labour - Cox Yeats


The Cox Yeats Labour Team, in conjunction with The People Solutions Company, is presenting a critical workshop on: Adapting to challenges and a changing economy within South Africa's Human Resources and Industrial Relations landscape.

Considering the current economic climate ("Junk Status") in South Africa, employers who are compelled to reduce labour costs and/or restructure their business operations need to be all the more cautious and insightful when approaching retrenchments and particular commercial transactions, within the framework of a highly regulated labour relations system.

The Cox Yeats Labour Team will be addressing such developments at a workshop presented by Chris Haralambous, partner at Cox Yeats Attorneys and head of the Labour Law Team. With over 20 years' experience, his expertise lies in labour relations, commercial litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) practice. He is also a Fellow of the Association of Arbitrators (Southern Africa).

Topics include:
• The convergence of Law, Business and Labour
• Understanding atypical forms of employment
-- Distinguishing 'temporary', 'part-time' and 'permanent' employment
-- The limits of fixed-term employment
-- Restrictions on labour broking under the Labour Relations Act
-- Contracts of employment vs letters of appointment
• Restructuring, outsourcing and retrenchments
• Managing strike action and conflict in the workplace
