We provide a legal advice helpline 24/7, 365 days of the year where our members speak directly with a Legal Advisor in order to effectively address any matter as soon as possible.
When members join the LWO they receive an information and implementation session that include the following:
- Information session: proactive training with regards to all aspects of the employer’s relevant sector / Bargaining Council. Employment contracts, payslips, policies, procedures, disciplinary code and pro-forma labour law documentation (warnings, ultimatums, etcetera) will be provided and explained.
- Implementation session: discussion of terms and conditions of employment contracts, policies, procedures, disciplinary code and relevant legislation with the employer and employees, to ensure that the member complies in all respects with the requirements as set by the member’s relevant sector / Bargaining Council.
We provide our members with free employment contracts and all other Labour Law related documentation that comply with Labour Law as well as the applicable Sectoral Determination or Bargaining Council Agreement. The LWO uses leglislation to the employer’s optimum benefit in drafting these employment contracts in order to proactively manage possible future disputes.
