When holding a disciplinary hearing, it is vital that the employer follow the correct procedure and have sufficient proof. South Africa’s labour market is highly regulated, which makes it crucial for employers to continuously comply with labour law. Clear rules and procedures in the workplace creates order and an environment receptive to growth.
Employers must remember that they have many rights in the workplace, including the right to:
- establish a fixed standard in terms of quality and quantity
- implement rules in the workplace
- apply discipline when these rules are broken
