January 16, 2018 @ 9:00 am - January 17, 2018 @ 5:00 pm


Many employers are not familiar or unaware that The Employment Act contains certain rights for both the employer and the employee. As a result of this actions taken by employers contravene the law and they end up having to pay hefty compensation or pay fines due to non-compliance. Lack of understanding of labour laws also result in added cost to the employer and at the same time incurring time, money and legal fees when their employees take them to the Labour Court or Industrial Court
