Trust South Africa’s foremost experts
to unpack the year’s critical labour developments
and equip you for the year ahead.

South African labour law has undergone important developments during the past year, notwithstanding the impact and implications of the Covid-19 pandemic. 
Labour lawyers and HR practitioners who may have been unable to keep abreast of the latest judgments and legislation now have the chance to have them outlined and explained in simple terms by experts in the comfort of their homes or offices.

The most pertinent and precedent-setting case law and judgments will be covered in five preliminary videos issued prior to the Webinar along with a complimentary workbook. Areas covered will include dismissal, discrimination, collective labour law, handling cases in the CCMA and the effect of Covid-19 on employers and employees.

The Webinar will be devoted mainly to discussion on these and other topics and issues of concern to those attending. Questions and responses will be invited from participants and lively debate can be expected.
There is also the option of registering for the August delivery of the Interactive Multimedia ePub, which provides access to the entire webinar package in one enhanced e-learning publication. This option is designed specifically for those with limited internet access, but is also ideal for those wanting perpetual access to a consolidated reference and research tool.

Juta hopes you will join us for this 21st Annual Labour Law Seminar on 7 June 2022, the second to be held in remote form.
