In the article, What Is Considered To Be ‘Fair’ in a Disciplinary Hearing?, we discussed the conditions necessary for a disciplinary hearing to be considered to be fair. What this means is that to pass muster, a disciplinary hearing must possess the quality of procedural fairness. It must also be substantively fair.

The employment contract - that is entered into between employer and employee - signals the beginning of an employment relationship. There are a number of essential elements that a contract of employment is based on that are useful for employers to know before they draw any of these documents up or commission these to be drawn up.

The Bill of Rights as contained in the Constitution as well as the Employment Equity Act (EEA) prohibit discrimination by one South African, or person situated in South Africa, unless this discrimination is for justifiable reasons.

Warning regarding “QMS in a box” adverts

It has come to our attention that mailers have been doing the rounds advertising pre-packaged and templatised academic quality management systems. While the cost associated with these products are very attractive – some are offered for prices as low as R18 000 – we strongly recommend you decline these offers for the following reasons:

In today’s tech-savvy world, every student has the passion to perform at peak level. But it is also a surprising fact that many students and educators ignore the significance of technology that can boost their academic performance.

A great deal is happening at present to bring employers on line and to ensure they comply with the requirements of section 19 and 20 of the EE Act as outlined in the EE Act.

Many companies I have come into contact with are familiar with the various EEA forms and have completed these but what sort of thought has gone into them and are they all discussed with the members of the EE forum before any plans are developed or changes made to existing plans? This constitutes an integral part of the consultation process.
