    Written Warnings and Dismissals

    Posted by Nicole van Eeden on July 27, 2015 at 11:33 5 Comments

    When compiling a written warning or notification to attend a disciplinary it is extremely important that the charges are correctly formulated. 

    Theft is a prime example: to charge the employee with “theft” is not sufficient and additional charges must be incorporated.  The reason we address other things relating to the theft is that it is not always proven in a disciplinary hearing that the act of “theft” was complete and the employee is then found not guilty.  It could be that the…

    Can computer software replace the job of an HR?

    Posted by Chantel Harris on July 13, 2015 at 10:00 0 Comments

    The aim of computer software is to make the task of a human resource manager easier. However, the way in which the HR utilises and executes a task is up to them. Modern technology has advanced throughout the years, and the fear we should all have is; will machine take away my job? The answer is, not quite -especially not if you are the HR of a major company. Human interaction is still required in all aspects of keeping employees happy. Human Resource Software may help track employee…
