With you 100% Sylvia. Regarding the task and roles as you mention I find the OFO’s are of great assistance in ensuring some form of standardisation.

I refuse to be drawn on this one. All I can say is that I am not surprised.

Thank you for this important up date Sylvia. It concerns me that some of the changes will give the minister sweeping powers and at the same time the bill seems to be very much weighted in favour of the employees and detrimental to the employer. some sections need very careful study.
