When you outsource labour law, ask these questions:
Can you represent me at the CCMA / Bargaining Council?
Remember: The LWO is a registered employers’ organisation with the Department of Labour and automatically has the right to represent our members in the CCMA, Bargaining Councils and Labour Court.
Do you specialise in labour law? Do you have applicable experience?
Remember: The LWO has been assisting employers to comply with labour law since 1990 and is today a market leader in the field of labour law in terms of expertise. The LWO has a team of highly trained Legal Advisors – currently with roughly 235 years’ relevant experience in the field of labour law. As a registered employers’ organisation we focus solely on assisting the employer to comply with labour law.
Do you render services on the employer’s premises?
Remember: The LWO renders services on the employer’s premises according to our members’ needs. We are proud of our values and render quality services
Is your solution cost-effective?
Remember: The LWO is a non-profit members’ organisation which means that finances are managed in our members’ best interest and not to chase profit. We definitely make a profit but call it a surplus, which is invested back into the organisation to improve service delivery with regards to specialist knowledge and infrastructure.
How long has the business been operating? Business continuity?
Remember: The LWO has been specialising in the field of labour law for 28 years. The organisation was established in 1990 to assist employers to comply with labour law. The LWO has a national footprint and the necessary infrastructure to guarantee our members receive quality services when they need it. We also have a 24/7 legal advice helpline where our members have direct access to our legal department for assistance at any time.
Can I as the employer give input with regards to the management of the organisation?
Remember: The LWO is a non-profit members’ organisation managed by a Board consisting of members of the organisation. The benefit to you as member is that the organisation is managed by employers who have first-hand experience and knowledge of the workplace and challenges employers face, and gives strategic direction to the organisation according to members’ needs.
To comply with labour legislation doesn’t have to be a headache.
The LWO makes it easy, simple AND uses it to protect your business.
