Labour law – for the employer

Labour audit

Upon joining, every member receives a labour audit with implementation session where a qualified legal advisor does a full analysis and investigation on your premises of your employment contracts, rules, procedures, registration, etc. to identify any gaps or risk. All labour law documentation is then provided, explained, discussed and implemented to ensure that you as the employer comply 100% with labour law.

Free documentation
