EMPLOYMENT LAW & DISPUTE RESOLUTION

At LNP Attorneys Inc, we are well versed in South Africa’s various dispute resolution mechanisms. Specifically, when considering South Africa’s employment law framework, it is arguably more complex than many other countries, given our political heritage and the emphasis on protecting core employee rights, addressing employment equity, and advancing equitable representation in the workplace. In this environment, regulatory compliance and effective management of employment issues are of cardinal importance for business operations.

 

The regulatory and employment practitioners’ experience in the areas of civil, criminal and employment law litigation spans the spectrum of private and statutory forums and mechanisms, including, but not limited to, the civil, criminal and labour courts, bargaining councils and the Council for Conciliation, Mediation and arbitration.

 

Our employment law and litigation skills support our clients in the infrastructure, natural resources and energy sectors.

 

We have the infrastructure, capacity and expertise to advise, assist and represent our individual and corporate clients, big and small, in all forms of employment law disputes, litigation and alternative dispute resolution.
