As specialists and market leaders in the field of labour law, we minimise your labour risk by managing it proactively.
The LWO has a national footprint and render services according to our members' needs on their premises.
One of the biggest benefits of being a member with the LWO is peace of mind, when you are confident that your business complies with labour law, and the 24/7 support with practical advice regarding how to handle any employer-employee situation in the workplace.
All our members have access to our 24/7 free legal advice helpline, available 365 days of the year, where you speak directly to a qualified legal advisor.
Upon joining every member receives proactive training so that you know exactly what is expected of you.
A qualified legal advisor will come and do a complete labour law audit with 100% compliance with labour law in mind. All labour law documentation is also provided, explained, discussed and implemented. This includes employment contracts, policies, procedures, posters, etc.
The employment contract is the most important document in any employer-employee relationship. The LWO provides our members with purpose-built employment contracts specific to your business and industry. Don’t be satisfied with a generic employment contract. Use the best employment contracts for your industry and your business.
We also provide our members with free labour law documentation that comply with labour law as well as the applicable Sectoral Determination or Bargaining Council Agreement.
The LWO uses legislation to the employer’s optimum benefit in drafting these documents in order to protect your business.
