Invitation to online seminar: winning at the CCMA in the Covid environment

LABOUR LAW MANAGEMENT CONSULTING is proud to announce its on-line seminar on Winning at the CCMA in the Covid Environment

Increases in cases of retrenchment, pay cuts and misconduct resulting from the Covid 19 pandemic are placing severe strain on the CCMA, employers and employees. This creates a double whammy for employers because they have to allocate scarce resources to cope with the extra CCMA disputes, but also have to cope with the effects of the very tight lockdown at the CCMA. That is, contacting CCMA case management, lodging legal papers and conducting CCMA hearings are all much more difficult during the lockdown.

This seminar, presented by Ivan Israelstam, deals with these challenges by covering the following:

• How to avoid being taken to the CCMA
• Using the conciliation and arbitration processes to your advantage
• Understanding the laws of evidence
• How to prepare a case scheduled for arbitration
• How to present a winning case at CCMA
• How to navigate obstacles to communication with CCMA case management, lodgement of documents and participation at online CCMA hearings

Event Details:
DATE: 17 September 2021
TIME: 9h00-12h00
ENQUIRIES: Ronni at or 084 521 7492
