The principle of fair labour practice is a fundamental right that is guaranteed in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa which is the supreme law of the land.

Whether you are a small business owner, sole proprietor, partnership or large corporation, if you employ staff you should be equipped with the basics conditions of employment. Should a dispute arise, you must also be informed of the right steps to take. Most importantly, you must know what documentation to keep.
