The moment an employer-employee relationship exists, there are strict requirements the employer must comply with, despite the number of employees.

Restrictive labour regulations complicate business in South Africa. Therefore, it is often more practical to outsource non-core activities, so employers have more time to spend on essential business activities.

The LWO makes managing labour law issues easy, simple AND helps you protect your business.
