About us

Having started practicing Labour Law under the previous industrial court system (1956 Act), we have been at the forefront of pioneering labour advice. We are firm believers in tertiary education and our specialized team carries various degrees and qualifications from South African’s top Universities. It is the service and experience of our dedicated staff that we put at your direct exposal.

The Labour Relations Act of 1995 and its various amendments, does create a challenging environment for Employers. We aim to guide our members in making sense of these challenges and provide cutting-edge advice on legal behavior by our members.

We provide tailor-made solutions to our members.
