Labour law sets clear requirements that employers must comply with and the LWO’s primary goal is to ensure that your business meets all of these requirements

Proactive training

Every member receives proactive training in the form of an information and implementation session so that you (and your employees) know exactly what is expected of you – upon joining all labour law documentation is provided, explained, discussed and implemented


Members receive free employment contracts and all other documentation e.g. warnings, notices, policies and procedures, legislation, etc.
