Get your HR ducks in a row

A new year always provides an opportunity to “get your HR ducks in a row”, so that problems during the year are minimised. Fourie Stott’s labour department offers an all-inclusive service to assist employers to ensure that they are protected and compliant in respect of their most important resource – their employees.

How can we help?

Based on the specific needs of your business, we can assist with the drafting and implementation of all relevant and required internal policies and procedures. Including disciplinary codes and/or an employee handbook, together with the relevant employment contracts which you would require – be it permanent, part-time, fixed-term, or commission-based.  We can also assist in conducting an audit on your personnel files to ensure there are no shortcomings and bridge the gap should it be necessary.

We can also advise you on, or assist you by chairing, the following internal hearings for:

  • misconduct;
  • poor work performance – where a staff member is not achieving the required standards of performance;
  • incapacity – where a staff member is no longer capable of performing his/her job functions; and
  • grievances lodged by one employee against the business, business practice or a colleague.

Should you be faced with potential retrenchments, restructuring and/or strike action, we can help to ensure that the correct procedure is followed in terms of the applicable legislation.

Should you require any assistance, please email Claire Delport or call her on 031 266 2530, alternatively please have a look at our website for more details on our labour law department.
